“You have been an inspiration but I know that you feel you are standing for all the people of your country who deserve the same rights and freedoms as people everywhere.”
— U.S. Secretary of state HILLARY CLINTON, in remarks following historic talks with Burmese opposition leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.
Ms. Suu Kyi added, “We are happy with the way in which the United States is engaging with us,” she said. “It is through engagement that we hope to promote the process of democratization. Because of this engagement, I think our way ahead will be clearer and we will be able to trust that the process of democratization will go forward.”
