Her visit to China preceded her forthcoming visit to the US in September, and she will only come to India in October for the BRICS-BIMSTEC summit in Goa. Aung San Suu Kyi is the foreign minister because a constitutional provision makes it impossible for her to be President, but she is the undisputed leader of the government.
