Burma’s President Thein Sein and opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi met on Saturday in Naypyidaw where they exchanged views on the state of the country’s political affairs.
Ye Htut, deputy-minister of information, said the pair met at the presidential ranch because they had not seen each other for a while.
“I can confirm that the president met Daw Aung San Suu Kyi today [Saturday] as they had not had an opportunity to meet for some time. They exchanged points of view on the country’s affairs,” he said.
Win Myint, a spokesperson for Suu Kyi’s party, the National League for Democracy, said he knew the two had met but had no indications which issues were discussed.
This has been the fourth private meeting between Suu Kyi and Thein Sein.
