The Kachin Post / October 23, 2019

Burma’s State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi visited ONE dual-title World Champion Aung La Nsang’s hotel room in Tokyo, Japan on Monday, congratulating on his recent victory of ONE Championship.

“My family got a pleasant surprise to meet the State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi,” Aung La said in his social media page. “She congratulated me on my ONE Championship match.”

Suu Kyi is the first high-ranking Burmese government official meeting with ONE Champion Aung La Nsang, who said Suu Kyi inspired him to be a better person.

Pictures of Aun San Suu Kyi meeting Aung La and his family also posted at the social media page of Daw Khin Kyi Foundation, which was established in 2012 by Aung San Suu Kyi in loving memory of her mom Daw Khin Kyi.

Suu Kyi is in Japan recent days scheduled to meet with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the 2nd Myanmar Investment Conference and attend the enthronement ceremony of Japanese Emperor Naruhito.

In December 2018, Aung La was granted as Burma’s Tourism Ambassador by the Ministry of Hotel and Tourism in order to boost the country’s Tourism industry. During the memorandum-signing ceremony, Aung La met with Minister for Hotel and Tourism U Ohn Maung and Yangon Division Chief Minister Phyo Min Thein.
