Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs
Fabian Hamilton (Leeds North East, Labour)
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he has raised the situation of the Rohingya people in Burma with his European counterparts; and when he next plans to do so.
Hugo Swire (East Devon, Conservative)
The situation in Rakhine state was also discussed by senior EU member state officials in Brussels in July at the UK's initiative. They will do so again in September. Our embassy in Rangoon is in close touch with all EU missions and as local EU presidency, is leading the EU response.
We will continue to work urgently with our international partners, and through the UN and EU, to highlight the plight of the Rohingya.
