Myanmar`s Suu Kyi calls UN envoy visit encouraging
Yangon: Pro-democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi says she is encouraged after meeting with the UN human rights envoy to Myanmar.
Suu Kyi says today`s 90-minute meeting in Yangon with Tomas Ojea Quintana and leaders of her disbanded National League for Democracy focused on Myanmar`s more than 2,000
political prisoners and other human rights issues.
She says Quintana has a "genuine will to help improve human rights conditions in Myanmar."
Quintana says he has had "fruitful meetings" with government ministers and representatives of political parties.
His five-day visit to Myanmar is his first since a nominally civilian government took power in March. He was refused a visa for over a year.
