Suu Kyi Meets with China Ambassador

6 March 2013

Burma’s pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi met with China’s Ambassador to Burma Li Junhua on Tuesday evening in the capital Naypyidaw, according to a post on the Facebook page of her party, the National League for Democracy. The post made no mention of the issues that were discussed during the meeting. The Chinese Embassy had not released a statement on the meeting on Wednesday morning. It is believed to be the second official meeting between a Chinese official and Burma’s main opposition party. The last time was in 1990, when China’s ambassador met with senior NLD leaders following their landslide election victory that was later ignored by Burma’s military.
