Jewish Agency chairman and former Soviet refusenik Natan Sharansky sent a letter to Burmese Nobel Peace Prize laureate and recently released political prisoner Aung San Suu Kyi to express his sincere excitement upon hearing the news of her release from house arrest by Burma's ruling military junta.

"Your heroic determination and devotion to freedom and to your people say more about the soul of the Burmese people than all the rhetoric of the regime that tried to keep you silent," Sharansky wrote.

He also ended the letter with the "sincere hope for a free and democratic Burma."

Sharansky signed his letter both in his official role as Jewish Agency chairman as well as "former Soviet dissident and political prisoner."
