Minister of Foreign Affairs NYAN Win of Burma

Nyan Win said the jailing of Aung Thein and Khin Maung Shein, who have represented student activists in the courts, was a sign of increased pressure on the party from the ruling junta.
On 19 February 2008 the Singapore Foreign Minister George Yeo is reported to have told the media in Singapore that his Burmese colleague Nyan Win had informed ASEAN colleagues that Daw Aung San Suu Kyi would not be able to stand in the 2010 Elections because she had been married to a British husband and had two children who were not Burmese citizens, but British.
FM Nyan Win has not sought to clarify his remarks, which is understandable as the Elections are not due for at least another 21 months and he may well see little point in stirring up trouble further.
Win Aung, though, has fallen from grace, and Nyan Win is the present Foreign Minister, though no Foreign Minister would normally express a definitive view on an issue which is not within his ministerial remit.
To add to the confusion, the media reported that FM Nyan Win had said that the same had been true in 1974.
General Assembly Monday, U Nyan Win said the military crackdown was necessary to restore law and order.
Speaking of the violent actions his government has taken against peaceful pro-democracy demonstrators in recent weeks, Win says the situation would not have deteriorated had the initial protests against the rise in fuel prices not been exploited by what he termed "political opportunists.
Sep 1, 2008 (DVB)–Detained democracy leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her lawyer U Kyi Win met for 30 minutes this morning, the National League for Democracy said today.
NLD spokesperson U Nyan Win said that apart from having lost weight, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was generally in good health but that U Kyi Win had not asked her about the rumours that she was staging a hunger strike.
But Nyan Win said she should be allowed to see her family physician as soon as possible because of the concerns for her health.
Nyan Win said the NLD would need to ask permission from the special information branch for another meeting to enable the party to continue its activities on her behalf.
When asked about rumours that Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was on a hunger strike, Nyan Win said the matter had not been discussed.
Sep 16, 2008 (DVB)–National League for Democracy spokesperson U Nyan Win said Daw Aung San Suu Kyi has begun receiving food deliveries again after refusing to accept supplies for the past four weeks.
U Kyi Win is currently collecting documents and files relating and finalizing the details of the appeal.
Foreign Minister Nyan Win said on state TV his government is ready to accept international assistance, and aid shipments are now being prepared.
At the meeting, U Nyan Win said the frequent exchange of visits at high level has strongly enhanced the development of the bilateral ties.
Noting that a constitution convention completed its work by approving the fundamental principles for the new constitution earlier this month, Win said that significant progress has already been made.
An NLD spokesperson U Nyan Win said the prison's action is not in accordance with the law and if he did die of torture, they will ask the court to take action.
NLD spokesman Nyan Win said he heard that female party member Htet Htet Oo Wei was among those who marched but he could not confirm her arrest.
Singapore Foreign Minister George Yeo said Nyan Win was clear on this.
The Russian ambassador’s meeting with Nyan Win was seen as quiet diplomatic pressure on the regime to cooperate with the UN.
While a large number of Burmese émigrés were protesting outside the UN headquarters against the junta’s use of deadly force against pro-democracy demonstrators, Nyan Win was addressing the 62nd session of the UN General Assembly, where he stressed that the destiny of each and every country can only be determined by its government and its people.
Nyan Win was formerly the vice chief of armed forces training, while Maung Myint was commander of the No.
According to Thailand's Bangkok Post newspaper, Nyan Win is believed to be close to the junta's hardline leader, Senior Gen.
The NLD spokesperson Nyan Win said they contacted lawyer Kyi Win after they were informed by junta authorities that the Burmese democracy icon wants a meeting with her lawyer.
He added that during the meeting Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and Kyi Win discussed the terms of her continued detention and ways and means of legally challenging her solitary confinement.
Nyan Win said it is too early to predict the significance of the meeting.
