Democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi said in a videoconference on Monday that she is planning a political tour in Burma next month, the first since her release from detention six months ago.
Suu Kyi, who was released from house arrest last November, was asked to confirm reports she will launch political rallies across the nation – a move likely to test both her popularity and the limits of her freedom.
‘I hope to travel… in the month of June,’ the Nobel Peace Prize winner told over 1,000 academics, students and public attending the videoconference at the University of Hong Kong.
‘Where I will be going I can’t tell you yet. We are trying to work out the itinerary,’ she said.
