Statement to Media by Prime Minister after meeting Daw Aung San Suu Kyi

Following is the text of the statement to media by the Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh after his meeting with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi: 

“It has been a great honour and great privilege for me to have had this opportunity of interacting and meeting with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. We in India are very proud of our longstanding association with her and members of her family including her parents. 

I sincerely hope that she will find it possible to visit India soon. In this context I have handed over to her the invitation letter to deliver the next Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial Lecture which is a very prestigious lecture. Mrs. Sonia Gandhi has written an invitation letter to Madam to do us the honour to deliver this lecture in India. 

Madam Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s life, her struggle, and her determination have inspired millions of people all over the world. Our sincere belief is that in the Process of National Reconciliation which has been launched by President Thein Sein, Madam Suu Kyi will play a defining role. 

I conveyed to her our very best wishes for the success of the noble endeavour in which she and her colleagues are engaged.”
