Yangon, August 19 -- Democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi and President of the Union U Thein Sein held one-to-one talks at the President Residence in Nay Pyi Taw from 4 pm to 5 pm ( MST ) this afternoon, according to U Khun That Myint, NLD officer in charge of security of Aung San Suu Kyi.
“Following this one hour talks, Aung San Suu Kyi accompanied by U Khun Thar Myint and her personal assistant Daw Su Su Lwin met Daw Khin Khin Win, wife of the President and President’s grand daughter at the President Residence in Nay Pyi Taw,” U Khun Thar Myint told @@ adding that this fifteen minutes meeting was entirely devoted to familiarizing the democracy icon with the President family.
Khun Thar Myint described the 15-minute meeting, which he attended as “very cordial in a friendly atmosphere.”
However so Khun Thar Myint said he had no knowledge of what the President and democracy icon talked for one hour.
Khun Thar Myint added that Aung San Suu Kyi is due to stop over for the night in Nay Pyi Taw as special guest of the government.
For Aung San Suu Kyi ( 66 ), who have all along demanded for dialogue with the Head of State for several years as part of her efforts to achieve national reconciliation with the ruling government, her desire for such a dialogue has now been fulfilled though nobody knows yet what the President and Nobel Laureate talked about during one hour.
This morning Aung San Suu Kyi accompanied by her personal assistant Daw Su Su Lwin and her chief NLD security officer U Khun Thar Myint was taken to Nay Pyi Taw by government car.
In contrast to the rumours about her being taken to Nay Pyi Taw to attend the national level workshop on Reforming Economic Development, which was held in Nay Pyi Taw this afternoon, were all dashed to ground.
Yangon, August 19 -- President of Republic of the Union of Myanmar U Thein Sein received Daw Aung San Suu Kyi at his office in Nay Pyi Taw at 4 pm this afternoon, the state-owned TV announced at 8;30 pm this evening.
