Malaysia urges Myanmar to hold talks with Suu Kyi
Bangkok,Oct 21 (UNI) Malaysia today urged the ruling Myanmar junta to hasten the process of holding unconditional talks with pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, before the world pushes harder for political change.
Following United States warning for UN sanctions on Myanmar, Malaysian Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar said Myanmar's military dictators should quickly hold talks with Nobel Peace laureate Ann Sann Sui Kyi for ushering democracy in the country, Bangkok Post reported today.
However, China and Russia have expressed opposition to any such action by UN and Myanmar's Foreign Minister Nyan Win is also of the view that democracy ''cannot be imposed from outside.'' Despite repeated warnings by the international community to put an end to the violent crackdown, junta announced dozens of new arrests.
However, life in Rangoon is limping towards normalcy as security was eased and roadblocks removed to open the guarded Shwedagon and Sule pagodas for the visitors.
