Looks like I spoke to soon about Myanmar releasing Aung San Suu Kyi. Now they are saying that the National League for Democracy (NLD) will be invited to talks about drafting a new constitution in May, and retracted earlier statements made by the foreign minister that Suu Kyi was about to be released from prison. The NLD, led my Suu Kyi, won 1990 elections by a landslide but the military junta refused to give up power. The Nobel Peace prize winner spent most of the last fifteen years under house arrest.
