Myanmar‘s pro-Democratic leader Aung San Suu Kyi had a meeting with a UN official in her home in Yangon on Saturday, according to international news sites.

Vijay Nambiar, chief of staff for U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, visited Aung San Suu Kyi, the 65-year old Nobel Peace Prize laureate who was released by the ruling junta of Myanmar (Burma) on November 13.

The meeting, which lasted for more than one hour was considered by Ms. Suu Kyi as “very valuable”, as she hopes that there will be more meetings to come so that the problems of her country will finally be solved.

“But one meeting is not enough. I hope this is the first of many meetings. I think we may need many and frequent meetings to sort out all the problems we are facing,” Aung San Suu Kyi said.

Nambiar, along with his special envoy, told the news that he also has plans to meet with government leaders of Myanmar during his visit.

Aung San Suu Kyi was arrested and spent 15 of the past 21 years under house arrest for her strong opposition against the current military government.
