Follow-up on Obama's Visit to Myanmar

A little over a week ago, we published a blog post on President Obama's upcoming meeting with Myanmar Prime Minister Thein Sein. That meeting took place on Sunday, November 15, as part of Obama's visit to Asia and meeting with ASEAN. There's been a lot of media coverage about the U.S. president's meeting with Chinese leader Hu Jintao, but it's a little trickier to find news articles about Obama's visit to Myanmar. We've pulled together some online resources describing the outcome of Obama's talks with Myanmar's prime minister:

I can't find anything current about Myanmar on the web site. However, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton does offer some comments about Myanmar in this November 12 statement (she remarks on U.S. sanctions against the country).

Want more resources about Myanmar/Burma? (It could be referred to by either of the two names, depending on which country is creating the resource and its position on military rule by the Myanmar junta). Take a look at our country guide to this nation.
