Burma's media says Prime Minister Thein Sein will attend the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in China.

The government mouthpiece New Light of Myanmar says General Thein Sein will leave "in the near future" to attend the opening ceremony on Friday.

Burma's junta rarely gives any information about the travels of top officials.

China is one of the military regime's few allies and a major trading partner.
