Myanmar’s Suu Kyi holds transition talks with president
Myanmar’s opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, has held negotiations with the country’s army-backed president on the handover of power nearly a month after her party’s landmark victory in the elections.
Suu Kyi arrived at President Thein Sein’s residence in the capital, Naypyidaw, on Wednesday morning.
Presidential Spokesman Ye Htut told reporters that the meeting lasted about 45 minutes.
“The main point was to talk about a smooth transition and transfer of power to the newly-elected government,” he said, adding that the two sides also wanted “to discuss mutual cooperation in the future.”
