The statement of the Nobel Committee read:

She has become an important symbol in the struggle against oppression… In awarding the Nobel Peace Prize for 1991 to Aung San Suu Kyi, the Norwegian Nobel Committee wishes to honor this woman for her unflagging efforts and to show its support for the many people throughout the world who are striving to attain democracy, human rights and ethnic conciliation by peaceful means.” Oslo, 14 October 1991. On 16 June 2012, Aung San Suu Kyi was finally able to deliver her Nobel acceptance speech at Oslo’s City Hall, two decades after being awarded the peace prize.
