NAY PYI TAW – Opposition leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi met Wednesday with President U Thein Sein at his house in Nay Pyi Taw for “reconciliation” talks with the ruling military bloc, government sources said.
“The meeting was scheduled to start at 9.00 am exactly,” said U Zaw Htay, President House Deputy Director General.
The Nobel peace laureate was also scheduled to meet with Commander-in-Chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing Wednesday afternoon, U Zaw Htay said.
Shortly after her National League for Democracy party clinched their landslide victory in the November 8 polls, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi proposed to meet with President U Thein Sein, Commander-in-Chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing and Thura U Shwe Mann to discuss national reconciliation and implementation of the election results.
Last month she met with Thura U Shwe Mann in talks that covered building up trust between the two sides and working towards a peaceful transition to NLD rule.
Myanmar was under military rule from 1962 to 2010. A quasi-civilian government came to power following the 2010 polls, led by the pro-military Union Solidarity and Development Party, which was soundly defeated in the November 8 polls.
