Although it may deepen the generals’ crisis, both sides are well aware of their own weaknesses and are likely to hold on to the negotiations, which offer the best available alternative to the more confrontational approach taken in the past. The timing of Aung San Suu Kyi’s release from house arrest therefore rests with the outcome of the ongoing negotiations. When she is finally freed, perhaps along with other top leaders and political prisoners currently under detention, it will certainly be an indication that the two sides have reached a compromise. Until that fateful moment arrives, however, rumors of her release will serve only as an expression of the Burmese people’s determination to keep their hopes alive. Aung Naing Oo is a Burmese political analyst based in exile.
