WASHINGTON - Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi opened a two-week tour of the United States on Tuesday with talks with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the latest step of a rapid normalization of US ties with the former pariah state.

Suu Kyi, who won the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize for championing democracy in opposition to a ruthless military junta that held her under house arrest for years, will be feted by the US Congress, human rights groups and Washington think tanks.

She will also visit the large emigre community from her country, formerly known as Burma, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and make a series of public speeches from New York to California.
