Myanmar is likely to shake off tough EU sanctions this month, analysts said, after a dramatic change of policy from Britain and opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi in the wake of sweeping reforms.

Western nations eager to reward changes that culminated in Suu Kyi's election to parliament in April 1 by-elections, have made some reciprocal gestures to encourage Myanmar's government.

But the call from British Prime Minister David Cameron for all European Union measures to be suspended is the strongest signal yet that sanctions may be halted -- although not scrapped completely as the international community looks to maintain leverage in the still army-dominated country.
