Myanmar


Myanmar is one of the countries that receive economic sanctions from America. It is governed by military terms. President Tein Sein, who won the election at March in 2010, tries to rewrite the law and loose the restrictions upon the media. Moreover, he released the prisoners including pro-democratic leader Aung San Suu Kuy. However, according to the New York Times, “The government has also allowed publications that do not deal with politics or history to publish without prior censorship. (Any newspaper articles that touch on politics must still be submitted to a censorship board.)” Now, because of Tein San’s trials, America thinks to relax economic restrictions and build a tie with resource-rich country, but still President Obama has skeptical attitude to Tein Sein’s government.
