Foreign Secretary visits Burma
In his first overseas visit of 2012, William Hague became the first UK Foreign Secretary to visit Burma in over 50 years.
- I’m currently in Burma, my first destination for 2012, to meet the President, senior ministers and ethnic minority leaders. There were some positive steps taken in Burma last year, including the release of over 250 prisoners in October. I was also encouraged to see the initiation of dialogue between the government and Aung San Suu Kyi, who I am delighted to be meeting later today. She has sent a few words for me to post on her behalf.
