Clinton to Meet Burma President Thein Sein in Cambodia 

Win McNamee/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will meet President Thein Sein at a business forum in Cambodia, the BBC reports.

The high-level meeting comes on the heels of the easing of restrictions on U.S. firms investing in Burma. Clinton will also introduce Sein to U.S. business leaders at the conference. She said Washington welcomed reforms in Burma, but the move did not signify U.S. satisfaction that the reforms are "complete or irreversible," says the BBC.

President Obama announced on Wednesday that U.S. companies would be allowed to conduct responsible business in Burma, as a reward to the government for its recent reforms and release of political prisoners.
