“An old friend from the East, a partner in our common Progress. PM receives Myanmar State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi at Hyderabad House,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted along with a picture of the two leaders.

Following delegation-level talks headed by Modi and Suu Kyi, the two sides are expected to sign some agreements.

On Tuesday, Suu Kyi met with President Pranab Mukherjee and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.

Though Suu Kyi is not the President as Myanmar’s constitution bars her from this, the Nobel peace laureate is effectively the de facto leader of the country.

This is the first official visit of Suu Kyi to New Delhi since her National League for Democracy (NLD) assumed power in Myanmar in March this year.

Prior to reaching New Delhi on Monday for the state visit, she attended the BRICS-Bimstec Outreach Summit in Goa on Sunday.

Her visit comes after Myanmar President U Htin Kyaw’s visit to India in August this year.
