Myanmar's Suu Kyi begins landmark US visit
WASHINGTON (AP) — Myanmar democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi arrived Monday in Washington, where she will be presented Congress' highest award. It's the latest milestone in her remarkable journey from political prisoner to globe-trotting stateswoman.
The Nobel Peace laureate embarks on a 17-day U.S. tour that will include meetings at the State Department and likely the White House. She then goes to New York, the American Midwest and California. The trip comes as the Obama administration considers easing remaining sanctions on the country, also known as Burma.
She meets Tuesday with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
