Obama calls that country Myanmar and Burma

According to an AP report, Obama used the name "Myanmar" when he held talk with that country's ruling leader Thein Sein and he later used "Burma" when he met opposition figure Ang San Ssu Kyi. In India, Ssu Kyi's country is called by the English-language media as Myanmar just as another British ex-colony' "Ceylon" 'is now known only as Sri Lanka.
