WASHINGTON: A video taped speech by the leader of the Pro-democracy
movement in Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi, will be the highlight of an
upcoming conference on democracy in Warsaw to be attended by leaders
from around the world, including External Affairs Minister Jaswant

US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright will introduce the tape of the
speech at the 'community of democracies' ministerial-level conference to
be held at the Polish capital from June 25 to 27, US assistant secretary
of state for democracy, human rights and labour Harold H Koh told
reporters here Monday.

Singh, representing the largest democracy in the world, is expected to
play a major role at the conference to be co-sponsored by India, US,
Chile, the Czech Republic, Mali and South Korea. Koh said the
conference, to be attended by 102 countries, would focus on issues like
how democracies can cooperate more effectively. (PTI)
