EU representative: Don't bring Thailand into this. Your boycott of parliament opening almost puts egg on our faces. We were easing sanctions against your country, for God's sake.
NLD spokesman: Do you want me to recount how many Thein Sein cheerleaders from your part of the world have jammed our hotels? You gave us the signals.
Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi today said she will swear an oath in parliament "as soon as possible", after a political impasse that saw her delay her debut in the legislature. In a dramatic climbdown, the Nobel laureate told reporters at her National League for Democracy (NLD) party headquarters in Yangon that she would pledge to "safeguard" the army-created constitution. "We will go as soon as possible to attend the parliament," she said, ending a dispute seen as the first sign of tension with the government since she won a parliamentary seat in historic April 1 by-elections. "Some people might ask, given that we didn't accept the wording of 'safeguard' in the beginning, why we accept now. The reason we accept it, firstly is the desire of the people. Our voters voted for us because they want to see us in parliament."
