    British Prime Minister David Cameron met with Burmese President Thein Sein on Friday as well as opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, a week before the European Union will meet to discuss easing the sanctions against Thein Sein’s regime. On Thursday in Malaysia, Cameron said he wouldn’t be opposed to easing sanctions if he is satisfied with the reform. Cameron’s visit comes just a few weeks after Suu Kyi’s party’s victory at the polls on April 1, and only a few months after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited Burma—and Suu Kyi—in December.
