She famously declined to leave in 1999 when her husband was dying of cancer of in London.
Myanmar's moves to release political prisoners and to allow Ms. Suu Kyi to run for political office, among other steps, appear to have persuaded her that it is safe to exit the country without being blocked upon re-entry.
