To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what discussions he had regarding Burma at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict.
11 July 2014
I met Deputy Foreign Minister U Thant Kyaw during the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict on 13 June 2014. We discussed a series of bilateral issues and I raised a range of human rights concerns. I welcomed the Burmese government's attendance at the Summit and urged them to follow-up quickly with a credible action plan that involved the military. I also raised our deep concern about the situation in Rakhine and the plight of the Rohingya. I highlighted our concern over political prisoners in Burma and encouraged the Burmese government to reform the constitution.
