Suu Kyi to meet PM on Nov 14 during India visit

Myanmar's pro-democracy leader and Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi will meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on November 14 as part of her four-day tour to India.

The visit, according to MEA spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin, is part of India's 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 build upon the positive momentum in India-Myanmar relations," he said.

Suu Kyi will also deliver the Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial Lecture here on November 14. "It would be recalled Aung San Suu Kyi had accepted the invitation from 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," the spokesperson said.
