Myanmar's opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi uses binoculars to look at the Letpadaung copper mine project during a visit to Myanmar Yang Tse Copper Limited in Monywa, 760 kilometers (450 miles) north of Yangon, central Myanmar, Thursday, March 14, 2013. In talks with villagers, Suu Kyi failed to persuade her listeners to agree with the conclusions of an official panel she headed that the national interest was best served by allowing continued operation of the Letpadaung copper mine, to encourage foreign investors to help the sagging economy.
