Myanmar journalists commend Obama’s ‘freedom speech’

23 Nov 2012

Myanmar journalists applauded US President Barack Obama’s speech before 
civil society at the historic University of Yangon where he stressed the importance 
of media freedom. 
“Instead of being repressed, the right of people to assemble together must now 
be fully respected. Instead of being stifled, the veil of media censorship must 
continue to be lifted. As you take these steps, you can draw on your progress,” 
said Obama, the first sitting American president to visit the country, on November 19.
