Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will return to Myanmar on the same day the trial for pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi resumes.
U.N. spokeswoman Michele Montas said Monday that Ban will press the military rulers of Myanmar, also known as Burma, for release of the 64-year-old Nobel Peace laureate and all other political prisoners.
She says Ban also will press for the resumption of dialogue between the government and opposition and for conditions to ensure credible elections next year.
Montas says Ban will arrive in Myanmar on Friday. That's the day Suu Kyi's trial resumes on charges of violating house arrest when an uninvited American showed up at her home.
