Burmese opposition leader says release unconditional
RANGOON, Burma: Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi said Monday her release from house arrest was unconditional and confirmed that no restrictions have been placed on her movements.
Speaking in Rangoon just hours after her release from 19-month of house arrest, the leader of the National League for Democracy said that the military junta would allow her to travel wherever she wishes.
"I hope to be able to carry out all my duties for my party and my country in the best possible way," she said.
Suu Kyi who called her freedom 'a new dawn for the country', said talks that began a year and a half ago in October 2000 have moved beyond the confidence-building stage and will begin to tackle policy issues.
Aung San Suu Kyi was confined by the military to her Rangoon residence and her telephone line was cut in September 2000 following her attempt to visit the city of Mandalay on party business.
