WASHINGTON – Senior Senator John McCain said Tuesday he lookedforward to someday welcoming Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi to the USCongress after the Nobel laureate and opposition leader was issueda passport. Her National League for Democracy said earlier Tuesday that SuuKyi, who spent much of the last two decades locked up in her Yangonhome by Myanmar’s former junta, was issued a passport as sheprepares to travel abroad for the first time in 24 years. “I’m very glad that she’s got it. We look forward to greeting herhere in Congress,” McCain, the ranking Republican on the ArmedServices Committee and one of the primary shapers of US policy onMyanmar, told reporters. PDA GSM Mobile

He did not provide an expected date for a Suu Kyi trip toWashington, but US lawmakers have invited her in order to receivethe Congressional Gold medal, the highest US civilian award, whichthe House of Representatives bestowed on her in 2008. “We look forward to the presentation,” said McCain, who visitedMyanmar in January and met with Suu Kyi as well as governmentleaders. “We’re very proud of her and we hope that this progress willcontinue in Burma,” he said, referring to Myanmar by its formername. McCain stopped short of describing Myanmar’s reforms as the dawningof a new day in the Southeast Asian nation, but said it was”possible,” adding that he supported a suspension of existing USsanctions on Myanmar instead of a full abolition, as some of hisSenate colleagues have suggested.

US authorities last month ruled out an immediate end to its mainsanctions on Myanmar, saying it wanted to preserve leverage to pushthe regime on ending ethnic violence and other key issues. Suu Kyi, 66, plans to visit Oslo next month to finally accept her1991 Nobel Peace Prize in person, and has plans to visit Britain,where she lived for years with her late husband and their two sonsbefore she returned to Myanmar in the late 1980s. Suu Kyi began applying for her Myanmar travel documents soon aftershe was elected to parliament in landmark April 1 by-elections,which were seen as a key test of reforms under the newquasi-civilian government that came to power last year. In April, Washington invited Myanmar’s Foreign Minister Wunna MaungLwin for a formal visit later this month as part of US efforts toencourage reforms. China Wristwatch Mobile Phone
