Clinton dines with Suu Kyi in historic Burma visit
Friday 02 December 2011
The US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, met Burma's opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, yesterday during a historic visit to the long-shunned South-east Asian nation.
The two women had a private dinner at the home of the top-ranking US diplomat in Burma. They are due to have a more formal meeting at Ms Suu Kyi's residence today.
It is the first time the pair have met in person, though they have spoken by telephone.
Ms Clinton is in Burma to test the country's new civilian government on its commitment to reforms that have prompted Ms Suu Kyi to participate in upcoming elections.
