PARIS: Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi is wrapping up her long-awaited European tour with a visit to France that puts the accent on youth and includes a debate with students at the Sorbonne.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner arrives Tuesday and meets with President Francois Hollande on Tuesday for talks and dinner. During her four days in Paris she will meet other dignitaries and plant a "tree of freedom."

France, which considers itself the cradle of human rights, is proud to host the woman who has become a world symbol of courage and hope for facing down Myanmar's military junta during 15 years of house arrest and imprisonment.

During her first overseas trip in 24 years, Suu Kyi also visited Switzerland, Norway, Ireland and Britain.
