The United States extends warmest wishes to Aung San Suu Kyi on the occasion of her 65th birthday on June 19. Her enduring struggle for the fundamental right of all people of Burma to live in freedom continues to inspire people the world over.
Sadly, she marks yet another birthday under house arrest; the world’s only imprisoned Nobel Laureate. We call on Burma’s leaders to free her, along with her fellow political prisoners, immediately and without condition. Such an action would demonstrate a commitment to the brighter future the Burmese people so richly deserve and would help set the stage for true national reconciliation. We look forward to the day when Aung San Suu Kyi and all of Burma’s people may celebrate in freedom.
