Obama Welcomes Release of Aung San Suu Kyi

Saturday, 13 November 2010 07:21 AM EST

YOKOHAMA, Japan (AP) — President Barack Obama says he welcomes Myanmar's decision to release democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi (ahng sahn soo chee), calling her a "hero of mine."

But Obama says that whether Suu Kyi is imprisoned in her own home or her country doesn't change the fact that she and the movement she represents has been "systematically silenced" and denied opportunity to engage in political processes that could change her country.

He called on Myanmar to release all of its political prisoners.

Myanmar's military government freed Suu Kyi on Saturday following the expiration of her latest period of detention.
