Observers inside and outside Burma have had mixed reactions about the success or failure of UN Special Envoy to Burma Ibrahim Gambari’s second trip to the country since the junta’s crackdown on mass protests in September.

Perhaps, the most optimistic assessment came from Aung San Suu Kyi, who met separately on Friday with junta liaison officer Aung Kyi as well as with top members of her political party, the National League for Democracy.

She told her colleagues that she believed the military authorities now have the will to take part in national reconciliation, a NLD spokesman, Nyan Win, told The Associated Press.

However, many observers remain skeptical about the junta's intentions.
