New Delhi: After nearly a gap of 40 years, Myanmar`s opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi will travel to India on November 13.

Suu Kyi, who will be in the country for nearly a week, will deliver the prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial Lecture in here on November 14, official sources said here on Thursday.

They said she is also expected to travel out of Delhi during her visit but the exact itinerary was yet to be finalised.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had personally invited her to give the lecture when he met her in Yangon earlier this year. She was also given the Jawaharlal Nehru award for international understanding in 1992.

Suu Kyi had studied in New Delhi after her mother, Khin Kyi, was appointed Myanmar’s Ambassador to India in 1960.
