IAF pilots are sweet and professional: Suu Kyi

Not treated well by her own military junta, pro-democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi on Saturday praised Indian Air Force pilots for being "professional" and "sweet".



Yangon: Not treated well by her own military junta, pro-democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi on Saturday praised Indian Air Force pilots for being "professional" and "sweet".

"I enjoyed my time in India thoroughly from beginning to end, particularly impressed by the Air Force Pilots who flew me back. They are the kind of professional military men I like to see," said the 67-year-old Suu Kyi who was placed under house arrest for 15 of the past 21 years on different occasions.

She added: "They (IAF) are very very sweet. So very soldierly in the best kind of way, officers and gentlemen."

During her visit to India last month, Suu Kyi was flown in and out of Yagon by IAF pilots in military planes.

After a 40-minute meeting with Salman Khurshid, a beaming Burmese leader also so praised the kind of reception she received from the Indian government and Indian people during her visit.

"It is an experience I wish to repeat," she said.
