"When he addresses Myanmar's Parliament on Monday, Ban Ki-moon, the secretary general of the United Nations, plans to urge Western nations to lift or suspend their remaining sanctions against the country. Mr. Ban will be the first foreigner to address the Parliament since at least the beginning of military rule in 1962. A new Constitution and moves toward political liberalization have revived the legislature, which was moribund for decades." (04/30/12)
