Burma’s Suu Kyi to make first trip abroad in 24 yearsBy AP News Apr 18, 2012 5:03PM UTC
YANGON, Burma (AP) — A spokesman for Burma opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi says the democracy icon will make her first trip abroad in 24 years in June.
Nyan Win, a spokesman for Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy, said Wednesday that Suu Kyi will visit Norway and Britain.
The 66-year-old Nobel Peace Prize laureate has not left Burma since she came back from Britain to visit her ailing mother in 1988 because of fears she would not be allowed to return.
The announcement comes after last week’s visit to Burma by British Prime Minister David Cameron.
