Veteran pro-democracy leader and Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, meets with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Myanmar. The pair hold their first face-to-face meeting over dinner, to compare notes on Myanmar's political reforms. Earlier in the day, Clinton toured one of Myanmar's most revered shrines, a towering golden pagoda that is the symbol of a country seeking a new relationship with the West. The pagoda stop was also one of Clinton's few chances to see anything of modern-day Myanmar, which is implementing tentative political reforms as it seeks to improve ties with Washington after decades of estrangement. Clinton is the first U.S. secretary of state to visit in more than 50 years, and U.S. officials say they still know little about a country many view as both hermetic and hard to read. Deborah Lutterbeck, Reuters.
