WASHINGTON - The United States will take targeted steps to ease sanctions banning the export of US financial services and investment in Myanmar to respond to progress in the Southeast Asian country's democratic transition, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday.

Clinton said the United States would also take steps to send a full ambassador to Myanmar, establish an office of the US Agency for International Development (USAID) in the country and relax US visa bans on select Myanmar officials following this month's parliamentary by-elections.
