We regularly raise concerns about the ongoing conflicts in Burma but have had no specific discussions with the government of Burma about the recent military offensive in Karen State. In a statement published on the gov.uk website on 11 May, the Minister of State for Asia and the Pacific restated the UK's commitment to supporting the triple transition in Burma: from military rule to democratic civilian government, from conflict to peace, and from a closed economy to an open one.
