PM to talk frankly with Myanmar Govt about Aung San Suu Kyi issue

BANGKOK, 1 October 2010 (NNT) – Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva told the press on Friday he would talk frankly with Myanmar Government about its political prisoner, Aung San Suu Kyi.

Mr Abhisit disclosed on Friday that the plan to pay an official visit to Myanmar on Monday 11 October is still on, right before the General Election in Myanmar takes place on 7 November.

Asked whether the detention issue of Myanmar’s former opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi would be brought up at the meeting, the Prime Minister said he would just be straightforward about it.

However, other topics of discussion also focus on Thai-Myanmar border relations, transportation networks, cooperation between Thailand’s private sector and Myanmar’s state enterprises, economic and humanitarian assistance and the problem of ethnic minorities.
