United States has battled to normalize relations with Myanmar after reforms there, eradicating most of the US sanctions forced on the military regime.

But, this week Suu Kyi cautioned that the speed of transformation was slowing down, and that United States had been over-confident about the modification process at times.

The US President will end his trip with his last stop in Australia, where the president will attend a G20 conference in Brisbane, Australia. His focus on the summit will be about the unrest prevailing in Ukraine. Obama could have a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss on the issues of Ukraine.

Even though, no formal meetings between them have been planned, neither side has denied that there are possibilities of having informal discussions.
