Ko Ko Gyi met Obama together with Min Ko Naing, U Khun Tun Oo and Thidagu Sayadaw on 19 November 2012.

Obama‘s visit:
Ko Ko Gyi met Obama together with Min Ko Naing, U Khun Tun Oo and Thidagu Sayadaw (total 14 persons) on 19 November 2012.
However, the day before (18/11/2012), when the representatives of “The 88 Generation Students” Min Ko Naing and Ko Ko Gyi discussed with the Obama’s senior adviser for Multi-lateral affairs Samantha Power, his message to US’s president was:

1. To communicate more with Myanmar Military
2. To help modernize (and professionalize) Myanmar
3. Military because younger generation of Myanmar Military are eager to update their army to International standard About the Obama’s speech at Yangon University, below are Ko Ko Gyi ‘s remarks:

1. Welcome US President’s land mark visit to Myanmar and view his visit really encouraging for democratization process.
2. His speech is generally good and positive because US’s president has studied well about Myanmar situation.
3. However there are some different opinions over Human Rights issues: when talk about “human rights” one should not forget the desire of the majority in this country and naturally each country will prioritize the desire of the majority of the citizens when to apply /protect human rights values.
