18:14, November 30, 2011

NAY PYI TAW, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Nay Pyi Taw Wednesday afternoon for her first official visit to Myanmar in an attempt to look into Myanmar 's political and economic reforms.

She was dispatched by U.S. President Barack Obama for a three- day historic visit until Friday, aiming to enhance cooperation in Myanmar's positive developments and to open a new chapter of mutual relations.

Coming over from Busan, South Korea, Clinton's Myanmar visit represents the first ever one to the country by a secretary of state of the U.S. in more than 50 years after John Foster Dulles in February 1955.
