Aung San Suu Kyi said at a joint press conference with the Prime Minister:
We still have a long way to go but we believe we can get there. I believe [Burmese] President Thien Sein is genuine about democratic reforms and I am very happy that Prime Minister Cameron thinks that the suspension of sanctions is the right way to respond to this. I support the suspension, rather than the lifting, of sanctions because this would be an acknowledgement of the role of the president and other reformers.
The Prime Minister said he would agree to a suspension of sanctions against Burma during a historic visit to the former colony
The democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi lived in the UK before becoming the head of the Burmese opposition movement.
Early this morning David Cameron will set foot in a country no British Prime Minister has visited for more than six decades.
