From the New York Times:

President Obama welcomed Myanmar’s opposition leader, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, to the Oval Office on Wednesday, amid signs that the administration was likely to further ease sanctions on her once-isolated Southeast Asian nation.
In the meeting, Mr. Obama paid tribute to Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi’s courage and personal sacrifice in fighting for democracy in Myanmar, the White House said. In a speech on Tuesday, she called for American sanctions to be eased, saying that they had served their purpose. A senior administration official said the United States was likely to ease at least some of them.
… 
Ms. Aung Sang Suu Kyi’s meeting capped an emotional day in which she was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in a ceremony in the Rotunda of the Capitol. Mrs. Clinton and Laura Bush, the former first lady, were among the guests.
