Officials say her meeting with labor minister and government liaison Aung Kyi took place at a guest house near the Nobel laureate's home.

Burma's detained pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi met with the military government's liaison officer at a state guesthouse for 45 minutes Wednesday.

Officials say her meeting with labor minister and government liaison Aung Kyi took place at a guest house near the Nobel laureate's home.

It was not immediately clear what was discussed during the meeting.

The meeting Wednesday is their third since the beginning of October. It also comes after the country's Supreme Court agreed last week to hear a final appeal against her ongoing detention.

Burma's military rulers have kept Aung San Suu Kyi under some form of detention for 14 of the last 20 years.

In November, Burma's government let her make a rare appearance in front of the media after holding talks with U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell. He was the highest level official from Washington to visit Burma in 14 years.
