National League for Democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi arrived in Sydney on Wednesday for her first Australian visit. The lawmaker is on a five-day trip to Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra and will make a number of speeches, including one at the Sydney Opera House on Wednesday. She was welcomed by scores of fans from the Burmese diaspora at Sydney airport, and will later meet Prime Minister Tony Abbott. She said she was in Australia “to explain what we’re doing in Burma at the moment … trying to get the Constitution amended so that we can be firmly on the road to genuine democracy.”—AP
