    Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) -- Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari will leave for Myanmar on Tuesday to discuss economic ties with the country and to visit longtime democracy advocate Aung San Suu Kyi.
    During his two-day trip, Zardari will speak with Myanmar President Thein Sein about promoting economic and trade cooperation between the two countries, according to a statement from Zardari spokesman Farhatullah Babar.
    The two sides will also consider ways to promote cooperation in oil and gas sector, the statement said.
    Zardari will also visit Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, in Yangoon, Babar said.
    Myanmar has been ruled by a military junta since 1962, but the generals are loosening their grip on the country after coming under criticism for their human rights record and as the economy suffered from economic sanctions.
    Sein, a former general, became president in March 2011 after elections that were criticized by democracy activists. But his rapid introduction of reforms has raised hopes of a lasting improvement in civil liberties within the country.

    Is the Pakistani plan to open up 17 consulates in Burma, along with $2 billion in investment to open up an eastern headache for India?

    OMG, what a masterful plan! :D

    After Rangoon, the first one should be Sittwe. Then Pakistan builds the next 15 itself! :D

    Yes, I would not mind if the entire PPP leadership was sent out into the Burmese jungle with spades to dig up land for new consulates. :P

    Tactical move by Pakistan.

    India should apply a no fly zone area for Zadari over India to get to Burma.

    Also think this is Zardari plan to make a string of pearl around India.

    Well, the capital is named Bangkok, Thighland, is it not, at least with Zardari's level of English comprehension? :P
