Speaking at the University of Tokyo, Suu Kyi, 67, a Nobel Peace Prize-winner and leader of Myanmar's opposition party, the National League for Democracy, said she hopes to forge a better relationship with the military establishment to win its cooperation in changing Myanmar's controversial constitution, Kyodo News reported.
She noted amending the constitution, which automatically grants 25 percent of its seats to the military, will require approval of 75 percent of the 664-member national parliament, dominated by the military and President Thein Sein's party.
She said she seeks to "establish a society where the military and civilian populations are two sides of the same coin, all working toward the security and freedom of our country."
