In an event hailed as the "most remarkable in the entire history of the Nobel prizes", Aung Sun Suu Kyi has delivered her acceptance speech in Oslo for the peace prize awarded to her more than two decades ago.
Given the prize in 1991 – but then under house arrest by Burma's military junta – it was left to the pro-democracy leader's two sons, Alexander and Kim, to travel to Norway to receive the peace prize that year.
Twenty-one years later and able to travel freely, Aung San Suu Kyi stood up on Saturday in front of a packed City Hall to deliver her long-delayed acceptance speech in a historic moment of high emotion.
Commended in the original citation for her "non-violent struggle" as "one of the most extraordinary examples of civil courage in Asia in recent decades" the 66-year-old activist, elected to Burma's national assembly during its fragile political transition, recalled with typical self-effacement the moment she heard she had been awarded the peace prize.
"When I joined the democracy movement in Burma it never occurred to me that I might ever be the recipient of any prize or honour. The prize we were working for was a free, secure and just society where our people might be able to realise their full potential.
The honour lay in our endeavour.
"When the Nobel committee chose to honour me, the road I had chosen of my own free will became a less lonely path to follow. For this I thank the committee, the people of Norway and peoples all over the world whose support has strengthened my faith in the common quest for peace."
In 1992, Aung San Suu Kyi said she would use the $1.3m prizemoney to establish a health and education trust for Burmese people.
Pretty inspiring, and a great landmark.
