President Obama opened the lines of communication between the U.S. and Burma stating “When I took office as president, I sent a message to those governments who ruled be fear: we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist. So today, I have come to keep my promise, and extend the hand of friendship.”

During his 6 hour visit to Burma, President Obama met with the country’s president, Thein Sein and democratic political prisoner Aung San Suu Kyi.
