William Hague hails Burma reform, says more needed

Help

British Foreign Secretary William Hague says he believes the momentum for change in Burma is real, but has warned against relaxing pressure too soon.

Mr Hague was speaking after talks with pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi in Rangoon.

Ms Suu Kyi said she was confident that Britain and others in the world would help Burma's move towards democracy.

Mr Hague's visit is the first by a British foreign secretary to the country for more than 50 years.
