(AP) A government official in Myanmar says President Barack Obama will visit the Southeast Asian country later this month.


It would be the first-ever visit to Myanmar by an American president.


The official speaking from the capital Naypyitaw said Thursday that security for a visit on Nov. 18 or 19 have been prepared but the schedule is not final. He asked not to be named because he is not authorized to give information to the press.


U.S. officials have not yet announced any plans for a visit.


Obama's administration has sought to encourage the recent democratic progress in Myanmar by easing sanctions applied against its previous military regime.
