Dharamshala: The Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile today welcomed the release of Myanmar's pro-democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi, saying her "indomitable spirit will inspire millions who aspire for freedom and democracy".

"The Tibetan Parliament in Exile welcomes the unconditional release of Nobel Laureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi from house arrest. Suu Kyi's indomitable spirit to push for democracy in Burma even during the 15 years of her detention is an inspiration for millions of others who aspire for freedom and democracy," the Tibetan Parliament said in a press release issued Monday.

"We call on the Burmese Military Junta to also release all other political prisoners including Min Ko Naing, U Gambira and U Khun Htun Oo.

"We believe Suu Kyi's call for national reconciliation will pave way for true democracy in name and in practice in Burma. Her thinking resonate the thought of His Holiness the Dalai Lama that the 21st century is the century of dialogue. We sincerely hope the Military Junta will open its arms and seek a lasting non-violent solution to the issues in Burma that will be beneficial for not only the people of Burma but the whole region."
