To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent assessment his Department has made of the humanitarian situation affecting the Rohingya people in Rakhine State; and if he will make a statement.
15 June 2015
We remain deeply concerned by the dire humanitarian situation faced by the Rohingya in Rakhine State. The UK is one of the largest bilateral humanitarian donors in Rakhine State, contributing over £18m since 2012. We regularly raise the underlying political problems and human rights abuses both bilaterally and in international fora, where for several years the UK has sponsored Resolutions at both the UN Human Rights Council and General Assembly. We will continue to keep it high on both the bilateral and international agenda.
