Junta considers Suu Kyi irrelevant: ASEAN envoy

Kuala Lumpur: Myanmar's military government considers Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi and her party irrelevant in the democratic process, said Malaysia's Foreign Minister after a brief visit to the country. Minister Syed Hamid Albar told reporters on Monday that his Thursday to Friday visit did not completely convince him that Myanmar was making sufficient progress towards democracy, as claimed by its military rulers. He said he had asked the junta to be allowed to meet Ms. Suu Kyi, who is under house arrest, and other members of her National League for Democracy party. But ``they told me that Aung San Suu Kyi has no more influence, that the NLD has no more influence'' he said without elaborating. — AP
