Myanmar's President Thein Sein yesterday made an unprecedented tribute at the United Nations to opposition icon Aung San Suu Kyi's "efforts for democracy."

Thein Sein also said in a landmark speech to the UN General Assembly that he wants to "completely end" a long running war with ethnic rebels in Kachin state.

Thein Sein, a former junta general now driving through speedy reforms in his impoverished state, spoke as Suu Kyi ended a triumphant tour of the United States which some feared could overshadow the president.
