YANGON/BANGKOK -- There will be "no compromise" between the newly formed National Unity Government of Myanmar and the military regime unless the group's demands are met, its civilian envoy told Nikkei Asia on Saturday, as he welcomed concerns voiced at a Southeast Asian leaders summit to discuss the crisis in Myanmar.

In an interview from an undisclosed location, Dr. Sasa, the National Unity Government (NUG) spokesperson and cabinet minister, said there would be no chance of dialogue unless the junta, known as the State Administration Council, agreed to conditions for dialogue.
