Myanmar leader denies becoming soft on military

Myanmar's leader Aung San Suu Kyi on Wednesday rejected criticism that she had become soft on the military, stating she had never been critical of the military, only their actions. 

Asked by Radio Free Asia if she had softened her view on the military, she replied, "we’ve never changed our stand."

“Our goal has been national reconciliation from the very beginning. We have never criticised the military itself, but only their actions. We may disagree on these types of actions.”

“We’ll continue to bring changes within the parliament. I’ve stood firm with the military before, and still do now."
