Myanmar Opposition Says Arrests Undermine Talks

Source: Reuters

Myanmar's National League for Democracy condemned on Thursday the arrest of two prominent politicians, saying it undermined talks to build "mutual confidence" between the opposition and military junta.

Myint Naing, a senior NLD member, and Pu Chin Sian Thang, chairman of the Zomi National Congress (ZNC) party, were detained by police on Tuesday, family and opposition sources said.

Their arrests came a day after detained NLD leader Aung San Suu Kyi met for a third time with General Aung Kyi, the junta's go-between appointed as a result of global outrage at September's crackdown on democracy protests.
