Rangoon (Mizzima) – 88-generation student leader Moe Thee Zun and ex-chairman of the All Burma Students' Democratic Front (ABSDF) Dr. Naing Aung, who recently returned to Burma after the removal of their names from a blacklist, met with President Office ministers Aung Min and Soe Thein on Sunday.

They agreed to cooperate in establishing peace and work for development, Moe Thee Zun said.
 
“All of us will cooperate with the government in undertaking democratic reforms. The government will cooperate with us, too,” Moe Thee Zun said.
 
The President’s Office ministers and the activists, who have spent more than 20 years in exile, held a meeting at the Peace Center on Shweli Road in Kamayut Township, Rangoon, for about 90 minutes. They discussed ethnic issues and education affairs, Moe Thee Zun told reporters.   
 
Dr. Naing Aung, the ABSDF ex-chairman, came from Thailand to Rangoon on Friday; Moe Thee Zun came from the US to Rangoon on Saturday. They will stay in Burma for about four weeks.
 
On August 30, President Thein Sein announced the removal of more than 2,000 names from the blacklist.
