President Thein Sein says Myanmar will release all political prisoners "by the end of the year", during his first official visit to the UK.

 

The president made the remarks during a speech in London, after holding talks with Prime Minister David Cameron.

 

Myanmar, has freed hundreds of political detainees since Thein Sein took power in March 2010.

 

Up until then, it barely acknowledged the prisoners' existence.
