US President Obama arrived in Myanmar on Nov.19 in the morning with
Secretary of State Hilary Clinton. The visit was the first time a US head
of state ever visited the country.
During his speech, Obama praised reforms implemented by Burmese
President Thein Sein as the right steps towards democracy. However
“this is just the first step in what will be a long journey, one that can
lead to incredible development opportunities”.
