缅甸民主运动领袖昂山素季星期三抵达悉尼机场,受到数十名支持者的欢迎。这是昂山素季首次访问澳大利亚。

昂山素季对记者说,她希望能在五天访问期间说明她的政党为推动缅甸民主进程所做的努力。目前缅甸正从数十年的强硬军方统治转型。

昂山素季的数十名支持者聚集在机场,其中很多人表示,他们为终于能够见到这位诺贝尔和平奖得主而心情激动。

星期三晚些时候,在著名的悉尼歌剧院举行的仪式上,昂山素季接受了悉尼大学和科技大学颁发的荣誉博士学位。

本星期访问堪培拉和墨尔本期间,昂山素季将发表一系列演讲。
 
Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi was greeted by dozens of supporters as she arrived at the Sydney airport Wednesday for her first ever trip to Australia.

The opposition lawmaker told reporters she hopes to use her five-day trip to explain what her party is doing to support democracy in Burma, which is shifting away from decades of harsh military rule.

Many of the dozens who gathered at the airport say they are excited to finally meet the Nobel laureate.

Aung San Suu Kyi later received honorary doctorates Wednesday from the University of Sydney and the University of Technology during a ceremony at the famed Sydney Opera House.

She will also give a series of speeches during visits to Canberra and Melbourne later this week.
