Burma to Welcome Obama for Historic Visit

  • VOA Khmer

Barack Obama is set to become the first U.S. president to visit Burma on November 19, in what is seen as encouragement for President Thein Sein's reforms. But human-rights groups say the visit comes too soon because Burmese reforms are fragile and oppression continues in Kachin and Rakhine states. VOA's Daniel Schearf reports from Rangoon.
