Suu Kyi vis­its trou­bled di­as­pora

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

BANGKOK—Myan­mar’s Aung San Suu Kyi ar­rived Thurs­day in Thai­land where she is ex­pected to be gar­landed by her ador­ing com­pa­tri­ots, hun­dreds of thou­sands of whom have sought work and sanc­tu­ary from war across the bor­der. It is Suu Kyi’s high­est pro­file over­seas visit since her pro-democ­racy party took power in April, end­ing nearly half a cen­tury of mil­i­tary dom­i­na­tion. Her gov­ern­ment has seeded hopes for a new era of pros­per­ity that could even­tu­ally con­vince the army of low-paid Myan­mar labour­ers in Thai­land to re­turn home.—APP
