Myanmar *not* discussed at Obama/Hu meeting

I just emerged from a press briefing with Kurt Campbell, assistant secretary of state for East Asian affairs and Jeffrey Bader from the National Security Council. Campbell encouraged the assembled press to ask about the contents of the numerous bi-lateral meetings held between President Obama and heads of state this week, so I took the opportunity to ask whether or not issues surrounding Myanmar/Burma were discussed at all during the meeting between Obama and Hu.
