Burma’s President U Thein Sein In Washington DC
(Direct translation of news articles from MyanmarNewsLocal Blog on 19 May 2013.)
During his cordial meeting with Burmese families in Washington DC President Thein Sein explained to them the current reform process back home in Burma and he also invited all the Burmese working abroad to come back home and help rebuild their native country.
He also reminded them of some American sanctions still active against Burma and told them that the reason for his visit was to urge the United States to end all the remaining sanctions like infamous Jade Act which bans jades and all gemstones from Burma.
All protesters were reported as the 8-8-88 generation groupies and they will be protesting again at VOA tomorrow when the President will hold a town hall style meeting there.
