UN Says Path to Substantive Dialogue Opened in Burma

Source: VOA News

United Nations envoy Ibrahim Gambari says a path to dialogue between detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi and Burma's military leaders was opened during his six-day visit to the country.

Gambari wrapped up his visit to Burma Thursday after meeting with Aung San Suu Kyi at a state guest house in Rangoon.

Meanwhile, the government has criticized the envoy's call for U.N.-brokered talks with Aung San Suu Kyi and accused the world body of interference.

A Burmese official was quoted by state media as saying that Burma would not bow to outside pressure.
