Reports: Aung San Suu Kyi refuses doctor

September 3, 2008

From Associated Press

State-run media in Myanmar says detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has refused to meet her personal physician and a top minister, a further sign of her frustration with the slow pace of talks.

The Myanma Ahlin daily said Wednesday that Aung San Suu Kyi refused to attend a meeting with Relations Minister Aung Kyi who was appointed to facilitate reconciliation talks which have been pushed by the United Nations.

Aung San Suu Kyi, who has been under house arrest for 13 of the past 19 years, has also refused to see her personal physician Dr. Tin Myo Win who had come to her residence to give her a medical checkup.

Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy party say her actions may reflect her growing frustration with the slow pace of reconciliation talks.
