Myanmar's parliament will consider amending the country's constitution, which currently bars opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi from becoming president, ahead of elections next year, an official said Friday.

"They agreed to discuss the issue of amending the constitution in parliament, according to the law," presidential spokesman Ye Htut told reporters after President Thein Sein held unprecedented talks with army top brass and political rivals including Suu Kyi.
