Suu Kyi to Take First Overseas Trip Since 1988 in U.K. Visit

Former Myanmar political prisoner Aung San Suu Kyi plans to travel to the U.K. and Norway in her first overseas trip since returning to her homeland in 1988 to care for her ailing mother.

The details of the trip are still being worked out, Nyan Win, a spokesman for her National League for Democracy party, said by telephone today. U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron invited Suu Kyi to visit Britain in June during a visit last week to her lakeside home in Yangon, Myanmar’s biggest city.
