UN Envoy Meets Aung San Suu Kyi in Burma

Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi met Saturday with a top United Nations official.

Aung San Suu Kyi spoke to reporters Saturday at her lakeside home in Rangoon, and praised the talks with Vijay Nambiar, chief of staff for U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

The  65-year-old Nobel peace prize laureate has been vocal about pursuing democratic reforms since her release November 13 from more than seven years of house arrest.  But she has also been careful not to verbally challenge Burma's ruling generals.

Nambiar also met Saturday with Burma's foreign minister.

He also planned to meet with diplomats and recently-elected lawmakers.
