WASHINGTON - A US ban on imports from Myanmar expired on Thursday, at least temporarily, because of a clash between lawmakers over funding for an African trade measure.

The two issues are tied together in a bill that has the backing of the Obama administration and that lawmakers hope to pass before their month-long August recess.

The White House has eased some sanctions on Myanmar, also known by its colonial name of Burma, in response to economic and political reforms. It does not favor lifting the import ban yet.
