​We are aware of this published report. Since August, UK officials have consulted UNHCR in Geneva and in Burma for clarification on the needs assessment process for Chin refugees residing in other countries, and UNHCR's proposed process for ensuring their safe return to Burma. The UK will continue to monitor this process in line with our objective of ensuring the safety of all those displaced by violence in Burma and a safe return process for all groups forced to flee to other countries.
