NAYPYIDAW (AFP) - Myanmar's army-backed regime held out an olive branch to its critics Friday, pledging to continue talks with democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi and to allow a visit by a UN human rights envoy. In a rare news conference, information minister Kyaw Hsan said the nominally civilian government, which came to power after a controversial election last November, hoped to get "successful results" from cooperating with Suu Kyi. The comments came shortly before Suu Kyi and labour minister Aung Kyi began a second round of talks in Yangon.
