Suu Kyi sees welcome change in Myanmar

Yangon (Myanmar), Tue, 25 Oct 2011 ANI

Yangon (Myanmar), Oct.25 (ANI): Dissident Aung San Suu Kyi said a series of reforms under way in Myanmar represents the biggest opening in the repressive Southeast Asian country since the 1980s.


She, however, said she wants to see more changes before she can support easing Western economic sanctions against the military-backed government.


The ex-political prisoner and Nobel laureate offered her strongest endorsement yet of steps by Myanmar's government in recent months to ease media restrictions, reform its state-dominated economy and pursue talks with the opposition.


In an interview with The Wall Street Journal at her party's ramshackle headquarters in Yangon, she said: "We can see the way clear ahead more than we have ever been able to."


"I know we are not there yet, but we can see the way clear ahead more than we have ever been able to," said Suu Kyi, who said her recent talks with government officials "felt real to me," unlike previous talks in earlier decades.


She suggested the government is close to meeting her conditions to officially register her political organization, a significant move that would signal her trust in the unfolding system and give Myanmar's leaders a level of legitimacy they crave.


She didn't rule out the possibility of running for office in a national vote expected in 2015. (ANI)
