DHAKA: Prime Minister David Cameron has invited Myanmar President Thein Sein to visit Britain to discuss the need for further reform after decades of military rule, Downing Street said on Thursday.
News of the invitation emerged just hours before Myanmar opposition icon Aung San Suu Kyi was due to meet Cameron as part of her own trip to Britain, her first in 24 years.
‘He is due to visit the United Kingdom in the coming months to continue the discussions that began when the Prime Minister was in Burma in April’, Cameron’s spokesman told reporters, using the South-east Asian nation’s unofficial name, reports The Straits Times.
‘Those discussions will centre on the need for further reform.’
