TWO of the world's most prominent women leaders have pledged to work together to bring democracy to Burma.
After meeting with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi said: "If we move forward together, I am confident there will be no turning back." But she added: "We are not on that road yet."
Mrs Clinton said the US wants to work with the pro-democracy activist as well as the government to improve conditions in Burma.
She told Ms Suu Kyi: "I know you feel you are standing for all the people of your country who deserve the same rights and freedoms as people everywhere."
"We want to see this country take its rightful place in the world."
Ms Suu Kyi has tentatively embraced reforms enacted by Burma's new civilian government.
