U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has begun a two-nation trip to Asia that includes the first visit to Burma by a U.S. secretary of state in 50 years. Clinton will stop in South Korea before traveling on to Burma. Her visit to the isolated country begins Wednesday.

U.S. President Barack Obama said earlier this month he was sending Clinton to Burma in response to what he called "flickers of progress" from the Burmese government, which ended decades of direct military rule in March when it brought in a nominally civilian parliament. Mr. Obama cited steps by Burma to open a dialogue with opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, the release of some political prisoners and the opening of the political environment. Mr. Obama said Secretary Clinton will explore what the U.S. can do to support progress on political reform, human rights and national reconciliation in Burma.

美国国务卿希拉里·克林顿开始访问两个亚洲国家,其中对缅甸的访问是美国国务卿50年以来的第一次。希拉里·克林顿前往缅甸之前将在韩国停留。她将从星期三开始访问缅甸这个被孤立的国家。

美国总统奥巴马本月早些时候说,他派遣克林顿前往缅甸是对缅甸政府取得的“些许进步”作出回应。缅甸今年3月结束了几十年的军人直接统治,并产生了名义上的文人议会。奥巴马指出缅甸采取措施与反对派领导人昂山素季开启对话,并释放了一些政治犯,政治环境有所开放。奥巴马说,希拉里·克林顿国务卿将探寻美国如何为缅甸的政治改革、人权和民族和解等进步提供支持。
