Angelina Jolie-Pitt stops for a photo outside of the Myanmar Parliament Building on Tuesday (July 28) in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar.
The 40-year-old actress, director, and activist was taking a meeting with the Speaker of the lower house, the Burmese House of Representatives, Mr. Thura Shwe Mann during the first day of her visit to the area.
“I am looking forward to meeting with many people including women’s groups, civil society, displaced people and youth, to learn firsthand from them about their concerns and hopes for the future of their country,” Angelina told People. “With elections on the horizon in November, it is an important moment for people to exercise their democratic rights and help to address the fundamental issues critical to a peaceful future.”
Angelina is a Special Envoy of UN High Commissioner for Refugees since her appointment in 2012.
