During Aung San Suu Kyi’s visit to the UK in October 2013, the Prime Minister, my right hon. Friend Mr Cameron and the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague), discussed our engagement with the Burmese military, the ethnic peace process and ongoing human rights concerns including the use of sexual violence in conflict areas. Aung San Suu Kyi has encouraged our engagement and shares our views on the importance of reforming the military to enable long-term reform in Burma. We are using our defence discussions to encourage the military to step back from politics, tackle issues such as the use of child soldiers, and bring an end to the use of sexual violence in conflict areas. Our Embassy in Rangoon will continue to discuss these issues on a regular basis with Aung San Suu Kyi.
