On her first trip to Europe since 1988, Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi on Thursday called for the international community to invest in her homeland. “I think the international community is working very hard to bring our country into it and it is up to our country to respond in that way as well,” Suu Kyi said upon her arrival in Geneva. On the two-week tour, Suu Kyi will also stop in Britain, Ireland, France, and Norway. But her trip has also been marred by ethnic fighting that broke out earlier this week in her homeland.
