We have taken careful note of the findings of the Chin Human Rights Organisation's report, ‘Threats to Our Existence’, including the allegations of the involvement of the Burmese Department of Education and Training in violating the rights of ethnic and religious minorities. Ministers and officials continue to raise our concerns with the Burmese government over reports of human rights abuses, including religious intolerance, at every opportunity.
