From the International Herald Tribune:

The top U.S. diplomat in Myanmar sat down for a rare meeting with a representative of the military government Friday, a day after the junta announced a conditional offer to meet with the detained democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi.

The acting U.S. ambassador, Shari Villarosa, met with Deputy Foreign Minister Maung Myint in the remote jungle capital of Naypyidaw, according to a senior embassy official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to reporters.
