Obama Will Visit Burma

A Burmese official says U.S. President Barack Obama plans to visit Burma later this month.
It would be the first visit to Burma by a U.S. president.
The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Obama plans to visit November 18 or 19 and would meet both Burma's president, Thein Sein, and opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
The White House has not announced any plans for a visit. But officials in nearby Cambodia and Thailand have said Obama plans to visit their countries that same week.
A visit by Obama to Burma would be another strong endorsement by the international community of the country's move toward democratic reform following decades of military rule.
The United States has sought to encourage reforms by easing sanctions imposed against the military regime.

Based on reporting by Reuters, AP, and AFP
