Hillary Clinton and Aung San Suu Kyi in Burma talks
Hillary Clinton is holding further talks with pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, where they are expected to discuss rights and democracy in Burma.
Mrs Clinton, the first US secretary of state to visit Burma for 50 years, had dinner with Ms Suu Kyi on Thursday.
Burma is still plagued by ethnic conflicts and the government holds hundreds of political prisoners.
Mrs Clinton met President Thein Sein earlier in a trip aimed at assessing his government's commitment to reform.
The US maintains tight sanctions on senior leaders in Burma, which was ruled by a brutal military junta from 1962 until last year.
But a series of reforms this year has led to speculation that decades of isolation could be about to end.
"The United States is prepared to walk the path of reform with you if you keep moving in the right direction," Mrs Clinton said after meeting the president on Thursday.
The pair discussed upgrading diplomatic ties, and the US said it would support some modest changes in Burma's relationship with the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
