YANGONG (Reuter) Myanmar democracy leader Aung San
Suu Kyi denied government accusations that she has be-
come dictatorial in her running of the National League for
Democracy party.

"There is no practice of dictatorship in the NLD party," the
Nobel Peace laureate told supporters late on Saturday.

Suu Kyi's remark was made after official, state-run
Myanmar-language newspapers carried a commentary
asking her to step down because she had become dictatorial.

In the commentary titled "Give up little sister," Suu Kyi was
accused of ignoring the will of the people in her leadership
of the pro - democracy party.


YANGONG (Reuter) ~Myanmar and Cambodia have signed
a cooperation agreement, official media reported on Sunday.

Myanmar's Minister for Foreign Affairs Ohn Gyaw and his
Cambodian counterpart Ung Huot, signed an accord to form
a Joint Commission for Bilateral Cooperation, according to
the reports.

No details were given.

Cambodia's First Prime Minister Prince Norodom
Ranariddh was also in Yangong, and met on Saturday
Myanmar Prime Minister Senior General Than Shwe.

Cambodia and Myanmar were due to discuss restoring
diplomatic ties at ambassadorial level during the visit, Ohn
Gyaw told Reuters earlier.

The two nations revived diplomatic links last year after a
break of more than two decades.
