UN chief Ban Ki-moon urged Western nations to drop more Myanmar sanctions, in a show of support for the reformist government as Aung San Suu Kyi agreed to end a parliamentary dispute.

Ban welcomed moves by the international community to reward sweeping changes in the country since the end of direct army rule last year, in a landmark speech to parliament following talks with President Thein Sein.

Ban's is the latest in a string of high-level international visits to Myanmar amid a thaw in the army-dominated nation's relations with the West, which has begun rolling back sanctions in response to reforms.
