Aung San Suu Kyi Meets With Burmese Government Minister

Detained pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi held talks with a Burmese government official Wednesday, the second time in less than a week.

Aung San Suu Kyi met with the military government's official liaison with the country's opposition, labor minister Aung Kyi, for 30 minutes at a government state house in Rangoon.

Details of the talks were not immediately known.

On Saturday, the pair met for the first time since January 2008. Her lawyer Nyan Win says the talks were likely to have centered on how to get sanctions against military-ruled Burma lifted.

That meeting came a day after a Burmese court ruled against an appeal to overturn Aung San Suu Kyi's extended house arrest.

Aung San Suu Kyi has been under some form of detention for 14 of the past 20 years.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP and AP.
