A Kachin group in the US said it would boycott Aung San Suu Kyi’s Congressional
award ceremony on Wednesday, while asking her to speak out and use her
influence to help solve the Kachin conflict with the Burmese government.
Aung Min is a former head of the Ministry of Railways and the key player
in Burma’s peace process. He was recently appointed to the President’s Office,
and also serves as vice-chairman of the Union Peace Working Committee.
