Myanmar vs. Burma - what is a name? US News: Obama to play it safe during historical trip
Much, if you are a Southeast Asiatic land that emerged from a decades-long army regime. When the British were colonising, they were referring to Burma and its capital Rangoon. But after the wide-spread pro-democracy protest in 1988, things began to change and Burma became Myanmar, or more precisely, the Republic of the Union of Myanmar; Yangon became Yangon.
Using both the name and the name in the land - Burma is more common, Myanmar is more literary - the choice was based more on a wish to show condemnation for the harmful regimes. Obama had apparently thought of shunning either name, but used both Burma and Myanmar on Monday during his brief trip to the state.
Use of the latter delighted his organizers - the advisor to Myanmar's President Ko Ko Ko Hlaing said the phrase was "very positive" and "recognition of Myanmar's government" - but White House officers were quickly playing down the step as "diplomatic courtesy". However, the Swiss flag still relates to the" Land of Burma" or the popular song for music.
