Yangon - Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi says there was no reason for her country's president to be annoyed by her recent trip to Thailand.

The opposition leader spoke at a news conference on Wednesday in Yangon and was asked whether there was any truth to reports that President Thein Sein was upset over her activities.

She said she felt her meetings with migrants and refugees were constructive and could not make anyone in Myanmar unhappy.

Thein Sein had been scheduled to visit Thailand at the same time as Suu Kyi, but later cancelled his plans.

There was speculation he was irritated at being upstaged by Suu Kyi. Myanmar officials said the president was busy with affairs at home.

The trip abroad was Suu Kyi's first in more than two decades.
