Suu Kyi party welcomes US support on Burma reforms
(06-17 19:39)

Burma's opposition welcomed a US call for voters to have a free choice over their next president, amid efforts to change rules that bar Aung San Suu Kyi from standing.
The US State Department urged reforms to ensure Burma's people could ''freely choose their president,'' in a statement responding to concerns that the army-affiliated ruling party would use its majority to quash amendments to the constitutional clause which currently bars Suu Kyi.
A spokesman for Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy said Washington's support was a positive sign.--AFP
