Aung San Suu Kyi urged the world to help Myanmar complete its journey towards democracy as she became the first foreign woman to address both houses of Britain's parliament.

The Nobel Peace Prize laureate said it was an "extraordinary honour" to speak in parliament's Westminster Hall in London, a rare privilege few foreign dignitaries are afforded.

Since World War II, US President Barack Obama, Pope Benedict the 16th , South African president Nelson Mandela are the only other foreigners to have addressed both houses in the 11th-century hall.
