Washington’s top diplomat told Myanmar’s President Thein Sein that while the United States acknowledged sweeping changes in the once-isolated Southeast Asian nation, fears remained over press freedom and religious unrest. “We have seen remarkable progress over the past few years, but there is a long way to go,” said a State Department official, adding that the US urged Myanmar to take actions to show that reforms were not “slowing down or regressing”.
