U.S. Nominates Mitchell as Ambassador to Myanmar, FT Says

April 7 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. government nominated Derek Mitchell, the state department special envoy to Myanmar, as the first U.S. ambassador to the country since 1990, the Financial Times reported, without saying where it got information.

The appointment, which the newspaper said will be announced in the coming days, comes after the country held by-elections on April 1 that included democracy advocate Aung San Suu Kyi.

Mitchell was formerly the principal deputy assistant secretary of defense for Asian and Pacific security affairs, according the FT.
