Myanmar Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi visits India
Delhi: At the request of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Myanmar's State Councillor and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi will make a state trip to India from 17-19 October. "Several important ministers and high-ranking civil servants will accompany the State Council," the Foreign Ministry said in a declaration on Wednesday.
"The State Councillor will meet with Indian President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj during her visit," she said. "Both sides will have the chance to debate questions of common interest and to look for ways to further reinforce the strong and amicable relations between the two countries", the declaration states.
It will be Suu Kyi's first formal trip to New Delhi since her National League for Democracy (NLD) took over Myanmar in March this year. Aung San Suu Kyi lived a significant part of her early lives in India and was trained at Lady Shri Ram College in New Delhi.
The 70-year-old Nobel Prize winner took over the office of State Councillor on 6 April this year, after she was the first Foreign Minister in the state to be excluded from the constitutional chairmanship on 30 March. Suu Kyi will be attending the Brics-Bimstec Outreach Summit in Goa on October 15-16 before her visit to New Delhi.
Myanmar President U Htin Kyaw was in New Delhi in August on his first formal trip after taking the helm. He visited Nay Pyi Taw less than a month after Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj's arrival.
