MYANMAR’S State Counsellor and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi will visit Thailand in late June for bilateral talks. The President’s Office spokesman Zaw Htay told the Chiang Mai-based Irrawaddy that the exact date of the visit was still being discussed



Thai Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai visited Myanmar in early May to extend an invitation from Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha to President Htin Kyaw and Suu Kyi to visit Thailand. But it is unclear currently if the two Myanmar leaders will visit at the same time. However, Irrawaddy reported that Suu Kyi would visit Bangkok from June 23-25, and Htin Kyaw would come.
Suu Kyi, now the de-facto leader, took office in April after her National League for Democracy won the election last November. The Nobel laureate was last here in 2012.
