My visit is to strengthen ties: Suu Kyi

India Blooms News Service

New Delhi, Nov 14 (IBNS): Ahead of meeting Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday, Myanmar's democracy movement leader and Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi here said her ongoing visit to India is to strengthen ties between two neighbours.


Suu Kyi arrived in India on Tuesday after decades on a six-day visit.

Suu Kyi paid tribute to Mahatma Gandhi at Rajghat and then paid her homage to Jawaharlal Nehru.

She said people keep asking her about expectations from India.

"My visit is an attempt to strengthen ties between the two countries. There are things in India that have changed and some that haven't changed. I am glad some things haven't changed since years," she told reporters.

The Opposition leader of Myanmar said her expectations from India is not what she wants to share with media now.

The government in Myanmar is now headed by a somewhat civilian government led by President Thein Sein.

A Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) official spokesperson earlier informed that Suu Kyi, who is the chairperson of the National League of Democracy of Myanmar, would deliver the Nehru Memorial Lecture on the occasion of the birth Anniversary of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru on Wednesday.

Suu Kyi had accepted the invitation from Congress president Sonia Gandhi in her capacity as Chairperson of Nehru Memorial Fund to deliver the Nehru Memorial Lecture when she met the Prime Minister during his visit to Myanmar in May 2012.

During her visit, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is scheduled to call on the Vice President, Prime Minister, Speaker of the Lok Sabha and External Affairs Minister.

Suu Kyi will visit her alma mater, Lady Sri Ram College, where she will interact with the faculty and students and also visit The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) in Gurgaon.

Besides her engagements in Delhi, she will be travelling to Bangalore where she will visit the Indian Institute of Science and the Infosys Campus. She is also scheduled to tour rural areas in Andhra Pradesh to gain a firsthand impression of the rural development and women’s empowerment programmes being undertaken in India.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi spent several years in India during her early days when her mother Daw Khin Yi was Ambassador to India.

"The visit of Aung San Suu Kyi would be part of our ongoing engagement with the democratic and multi-party polity in Myanmar. It would provide opportunity to exchange views on all matters of mutual interest with a view to building upon the positive momentum in India-Myanmar relations," said the MEA spokesperson.
