Malaysian prime minister Najib Tun Razak urged David Cameron to ease sanctions on Burma, saying he believes the democratic reforms in the country are genuine.
Speaking of Burma's President Thein Sein, he said:
I really do believe first of all that he is sincere.This has been supported by Aung San Suu Kyi's own personal remarks about him...We need to support a man like President Thein Sein so he will be supported by the community, because there will be elements who want to take a much more conservative approach.
Mr Cameron is expected to signal the easing of sanctions against the country as he delivers a message of support to Aung San Suu Kyi later today.
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.
