Myanmar leader Suu Kyi arrives in India, to meet Prime Minister

New Delhi: Myanmar pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi arrived here on Tuesday on her first visit to India in four decades.

Suu Kyi flashed a traditional "namaste" as she stepped out of the aircraft that brought her from Yangon. Officials here said she would meet Indian leaders including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The Nobel Laureate will be meeting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, tour Parliament and deliver a public lecture. She will also be visiting her alma mater - Lady Sri Ram College in Delhi. Her week-long visit to India comes two years after elections in Myanmar that formally ended military rule.
