General Ne Win

Individual Documents

Title: Back in the Limelight
Date of publication: September 1997
Description/subject: Burma's former leader Ne Win arrived in Jakarta for a three-day visit amid speculation that Indonesian President Suharto was to ask the Burmese patriarch to influence Rangoon's military junta to open dialogue with opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi. Speculation began to circulate in Jakarta two months ago that Suharto was inviting Ne Win to come discuss the issue of democratisation in Burma.

Title: Broadening the Breach
Date of publication: July 2000
Description/subject: In November 1977, Burmese dictator Ne Win made a visit to Cambodia, then under the control of the Khmer Rouge. Prompted by a request from China, the trip also helped Ne Win to neutralize the influence of the Communist Party of Burma by exploiting a growing rift between the conservative CPB leadership and reformers rising to power in Beijing. Bertil Lintner examines this revealing episode in Ne Win's political career.
