Statement by Mrs. Laura W. Bush

February 3, 2013

Today Burma's democratically elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi was released from years of unlawful detention. President Bush and I join with those around the world celebrating her freedom and urge for her release to be without condition.

We strongly support the aspirations of the Burmese people and their demands for basic human rights: freedom of speech, worship, and assembly. Daw Suu Kyi's peaceful protest is an example for the strength of nonviolent opposition. We fervently hope that the day of a free Burma for all its citizens is soon a reality.
