Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi was to arrive in New Delhi later Wednesday for the Thursday celebration, which will also include President Rodrigo Duterte, Cambodian leader Hun Sen, and Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, among others.

The leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, or ASEAN, were coming to New Delhi to celebrate 25 years of the group’s ties with India.

Myanmar has said it is ready for the Rohingya to return, but Bangladesh says more time may be needed amid questions over the Rohingyas’ safety and willingness.
