MANILA, Philippines — A month after meeting President Rodrigo Duterte for the first time, Myanmar’s State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi arrived in Manila for the 30th Association of the South East Asian Nations Summit.
Kyii landed at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2 at 2:50 p.m. She was welcomed by Health Secretary Paulyn Ubial. 
The Myanmar leader will represent Myanmar President Htin Kyaw at the ASEAN Leaders’ Summit slated Saturday.
Last March, Duterte donated 300,000 US dollars to the Myanmar government as a contribution to the humanitarian efforts to Rakhine State where a team of United Nations special rapporteurs expressed concerns on extrajudicial killings, gang rapes and possible ethnic cleansing of Muslims in the region. Kyi was grateful to the Philippines for this contribution.
In 1991, Kyi was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for non-violent struggle for democracy and human rights despite having a military-backed government.
The leader was detained via house arrest for 15 years and was only released in 2010. She became the state counselor of Myanmar in 2015.
