U.S. delegation meets with rulers

November 04, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A delegation of senior U.S. officials met with Myanmar's military rulers in the highest-level talks with the reclusive government in 14 years.

Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell led the U.S. delegation meeting the military government in its new capital, Naypyidaw, before traveling to Yangon for talks with detained Nobel Peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi and her National League for Democracy party.

State Department spokesman Ian Kelly characterized the trip as "basically . . . a fact-finding mission."
