Suu Kyi voices caution on Myanmar reforms


YANGON (AFP) - Democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi sounded a note of caution on Monday over Myanmar's rapid political reforms after talks with United States President Barack Obama, warning of the risk of a "mirage of success".

"The most difficult time in any transition is when we think that success is in sight," she said at her lakeside home alongside Mr Obama. "We have to be very careful that we're not lured by the mirage of success."
