Burma Situation Improving, I Hope.

Deputy Labor Minister Aung Kyi had been appointed as Liaison Minister to coordinate contacts with Aung San Suu Kyi

The appointment was recommendeded by U.N. special envoy Ibrahim Gambari during his visit to Myanmar earlier, as printed in The New Light of Myanmar newspaper. The junta had accepted the idea "in respect of Gambari's recommendation and in view of smooth relations with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi."

However, the new official's duties were not detailed, and the announcement did not say when he might meet with the 62-year-old Suu Kyi.

It appeared that Aung Kyi would coordinate Suu Kyi's contacts with both the regime and the U.N., which is seeking to end the political deadlock between democracy advocates and a military that has ruled since 1962.

Check this.
