Aung San Suu Kyi says her new government in Myanmar will work towards freeing all remaining political prisoners within the next two weeks, foreign media reports.

It is her first announcement in her new role as "state counsellor", a position similar to prime minister.

She is barred from the presidency but leads the National League for Democracy party which has a huge majority in both houses of parliament.

The move could affect up to 500 prisoners in jail or awaiting trial.
