Myanmar democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi on Thursday said she expected "full democratic elections" within her lifetime, in a BBC interview ahead of her meeting with a top British official.

The opposition leader, who is planning to contest a by-election due in April, told the broadcaster she did not know when she would have a chance to stand for president in Myanmar.

"I'm not even sure that this is something that I would like to do, or I would want to do," she said.

"I think there will be full democratic elections within my lifetime, but then of course I do not know how long I'm going to live," she added.
