She was greeted at Lester B. Pearson International Airport by Myanmar Ambassador to Canada U Kyaw Myo Htut, and Hon.

Myanmar nationals in Canada welcomed the State Counsellor at the Royal York Hotel, where she will stay during her visit.
The State Counsellor left Yangon for official visits to Canada and Sweden on 4 June and arrived in Seoul, Korea at 7am on 5 June.

The State Counsellor was welcomed at Seoul Incheon International Airport by Myanmar ambassador to Korea Thura Thet Oo Maung and officials.

The State Counsellor and party then departed for Canada on a Korea Airlines flight at 9:30 am local standard time.

During the official visits, the State Counsellor will discuss with officials from both Canada and Sweden about the two countries’ transitions to a federal democratic system.
