Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi was set to address on Tuesday hundreds of representatives of ethnic armed groups, the military and lawmakers, gathered for talks over a ceasefire to end insurgencies that have plagued the country for decades.

The Nobel peace prize laureate's National League for Democracy (NLD) won an historic election victory in November, but her party will not take power until March, with a presidential election expected to take place a month earlier.

The outgoing semi-civilian government of President Thein Sein signed a ceasefire in October, but seven of 15 armed groups invited to participate declined to sign, including some of the most powerful.
