I am deeply saddened by the extended detention of Aung San Suu Kyi to a further period of house arrest. 

 

As a fellow Buddhist, I would like to once again appeal to the Burmese authorities to show magnanimity and understanding by releasing her. Doing so will not only contribute towards reconciliation but also will be a goodwill gesture.

 

The Dalai Lama
