Following his arrival in Burma, David Cameron warned that reforms in the country could be rolled back:
We should be under no illusions about what a long way there is to go and how much more the [Burmese] government has to do to show this reform is real and it is irreversible. We should be very cautious and very sceptical about that. We need to see progress on political reform. We need to see prisoners freed and changes that show the reform is irreversible.
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.
