The next session of the Burmese Parliament, the first to be attended by opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, will convene on July 4, state radio and television announced on Tuesday.

Among the pressing issues is the sectarian unrest in Rakhine (Arakan) State, where deadly clashes have occurred since Friday.

The upcoming session will also consider dozens of bills left over by the last session. In the third session of the Parliament, from Jan. 26 to May 2, a total of 11 bills were approved, including a number of economy-related laws.
