David Cameron praises Burma's 'courage to reform'


David Cameron has praised the Burmese government for its willingness to introduce reform.

Ahead of a trip to Burma on Friday, the UK prime minister told an audience in Indonesia "where they have the courage to reform, we have the courage to respond."

Mr Cameron's visit will be the first by a major Western leader in 50 years.

It comes amid increasing calls for the easing of sanctions against Burma.
