Keith meets Aung San Suu Kyi

Posted on June 24th, 2012 in Local News

Keith met with Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi on her historic visit to the UK. The Burmese pro-democracy leader addressed both Houses of Parliament in Westminster Hall; an honour usually reserved for Heads of State.

Keith said:

“I was thoroughly delighted to have the opportunity to meet the courageous Aung San Suu Kyi.

In her speech in Westminster Hall she referred to Ravi Shankar as helping her to endure through her toughest times of house arrest. I promised to pass her good wishes on to Ravi.

I also asked her to visit Leicester on her next visit to the UK which she said she would consider.”
