British Prime Minister David Cameron arrived in Myanmar Friday on the first visit by a high-profile Western leader to the nation in decades.
He met with the president of Myanmar, Thein Sein, during a brief stop in Naypyidaw, the Southeast Asian country's capital.
The British prime minister was then expected to travel to Yangon, Myanmar's largest city, for meetings with British Embassy officials and pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
His visit to Myanmar, a former British colony also known as Burma, comes two weeks after Suu Kyi's party won dozens of seats in elections and marks the latest step towards international rehabilitation for Myanmar.
Cameron is the first British prime minister to visit Burma in more than 60 years, Downing Street said.FULL STORY
