Statement by President Bill Clinton on the Release of Aung San Suu Kyi
"I am thrilled by the news of her release. People who love freedom everywhere admire her and the long sacrifice she has made for her people. I was honored to present Aung San Suu Kyi with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2000 and I hope this signals a new direction for life within the country and for the country’s relations with others beyond their borders. In light of recent elections, I also hope that Aung San Suu Kyi’s release will lead to the rapid inclusion of her and the Burmese citizens in governance."
