To ask Her Majesty's Government what consideration they have given to the introduction of financial and travel sanctions against senior Burmese military officials following the Burmese military's recent offensive in Rakhine State.
20 September 2017
EU trade, financial and targeted sanctions on Burma were lifted in April 2013, but EU Restrictive measures were retained and renewed this year with UK support. These measures are kept under review. Our focus for the moment is on providing humanitarian assistance, urging restraint by the security forces in Rakhine and a de-escalation of tensions.
