Myanmar’s Suu Kyi meets top Polish lawmakers

September 12, 2013

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has met speakers of Poland’s parliament to discuss ways of building democracy that could help in reforming her own country.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner is on a visit to Europe’s young democracies, which shed communism two decades ago, to learn about their experience in building civic society. She will also visit Hungary and the Czech Republic.

On Wednesday, she held talks with lower house speaker, Ewa Kopacz, and Senate Speaker Bogdan Borusewicz. On Thursday, she will meet President Bronislaw Komorowski, Prime Minister Donald Tusk and address Warsaw University students.

Poland has been supporting Myanmar’s pro-democracy drive.

Suu Kyi first came to Europe last year and visited Norway, Switzerland, Ireland, England and France.
