 Visit the United States for the first time in decades
 The Associated Press reports that Aung San Suu Kyi will visit the United States for the first time in decades this September to collect an award. The Atlantic Council will present her with its Global Citizen Award at a ceremony in New York. There are no other details about Suu Kyi’s trip at this time, though the AP quoted the US State Department as saying that she would be invited to meet with US government officials during her trip as well.
Before her marriage to the late Oxford Tibetologist Michael Arris in the 1970s, Suu Kyi lived in New York for three years and worked for the United Nations. The Leader of the National League for Democracy in Burma, Suu Kyi spent 15 of the 21 years between 1989 and 2010 under house arrest.
