Living and struggling together with Myanmar people make me satisfy while Myanmar is the most suitable and my favorite place, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Leader of the National League for Democracy, said while she met Myanmar families in South Korea on February 1.
She continued that there are so many things to learn from other countries. “There is no need to be like other countries because our country and style is not like them, we need to imitate good things and no need to imitate unnecessary things,” she said.
She added that when looking at the world, the most necessary thing is sympathy to each other. Kindness remained less. People give priority to materials.
