Aung San Suu Kyi spoke about U.S.-Myanmar (Burma) relations, and she received the Asia Society’s Global Vision Award. She said that many obstacles remain in her country’s path to democracy and that a major weakness is its judiciary system. She also said that Myanmar must be responsible for its own destiny, and that U.S.-Myanmar relations would be balanced when her country is not longer dependent on America.

Ms. Suu Kyi was introduced by Secretary of State Clinton.

Aung San Suu Kyi was a leader in her country’s 1988 uprising, and elected prime minister in 1990. The military junta, however, would not cede power, and she was placed under house arrest for a total of 15 years; the final release happened in 2010. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991. close
