Aung San Suu Kyi arrives in India

NEW DELHI, Nov. 13 (Xinhua) — Myanmar opposition leader and pro-democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi Tuesday arrived in India on a tour of this country.

Suu Kyi, who was educated in India, arrived in the national capital from Myanmar and was received by Indian Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai. She is slated to meet Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Wednesday as well as Indian External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid and other top Ministers and government officials during her trip, sources said.

She will also visit the Indian Parliament, the sources added.

The 67-year-old Myanmar opposition leader, who spent the last decade under house arrest, will also visit her alma mater — Lady Sri Ram College — where she will deliver a lecture, during her tour in India. Suu Kyi graduated from the college, affiliated to Delhi University, in the 1960s when her mother was the ambassador to India.

This is Suu Kyi’s first visit to India in 40 years.
