Obama on Myanmar: 'Difficult choices still lie ahead'

Myanmar's opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, says she is confident the United States will continue to support democratic reforms in her country but she also warned against complacency.

Speaking alongside President Obama at her Yangon home, she criticised laws which bar her from running in the country's upcoming presidential election.

Mr Obama said America would continue to support the transition to democracy in Myanmar, but admitted there was still work to be done.
