State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi arrived back in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday evening as she was recovering from a brief illness following her visit to the United Kingdom and the United States.
She will deliver an address at the opening ceremony of the 37th General Assembly of the ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly in Nay Pyi Taw today, according to the Myanmar News Agency.
“The State Counsellor arrived back in Nay Pyi Taw by plane at 5.45 pm today,” said the report released yesterday.
The State Counsellor received a medical check-up in Yangon, with physicians concluding that she was weak and exhausted from the tight schedules she had to keep during her two-week visit to New York and Washington in the U.S. and London in the U.K.
It was her first visit to both countries after her party took power in March following its victory in an election last November.
Her office said a scheduled meeting between Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and Myanmar businessmen has been postponed, with an alternate date as yet unannounced.—GNLM
