(AP) PARIS - Burma opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi says she holds no grudges against those who kept her under house arrest for some 15 years.
Suu Kyi spoke at a news conference Tuesday on the first day of her visit to France, where she met with President Francois Hollande.
She says she's focused on practical matters, not "abstract ideas of justice."
The Nobel Peace Prize winner has been a world symbol of courage and hope for facing down Burma's military junta. She is now helping the country usher in what many hope is a transition to democracy.
