Aung San Suu Kyi Greets Barack Obama

Obama called Suu Kyi "an icon of democracy, who's inspired so many people not just in this country but all around the world." Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize winner whose father led the fight for independence from Britain in the 1940s, spoke of the "difficult years that lie ahead" for Myanmar.

"I say difficult because the most difficult time in any transition is when we think that success is in sight," she told reporters from the covered terrace of her home. "Then we have to be very careful that we are not lured by a mirage of success and that we are working to a genuine success for our people."
