Former Ambassador of the Czech Republic to Thailand met Burma opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi in Rangoon on January 5, 2010. Jiří Šitler delivered a letter of First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic Karel Schwarzenberg to Aung San Suu Kyi.
In the letter minister Schwarzenberg expressed his support to Aung San Suu Kyi as well as to democratic efforts of Burma opposition in general.
Aung San Suu Kyi appreciated the Czech Republic is still interesting in democracy in the world, in particular in Burma/Myanmar, even after its own democratization. According to Aung San Suu Kyi it is not a matter of course. A lot of countries with the experience of democratization do not help in such a way as the Czech Republic.
