To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if his Department will review the UK’s support for the current peace process in Myanmar.
A successful peace process is a vital part of the democratic transition in Burma. The main vehicle for the UK's support to the peace process, the Joint Peace Fund, has undergone a thorough independent assessment of progress and challenges. Our peace building programme in Burma is reviewed annually. The UK will continue our support for the peace process through technical advice and expertise. We have been clear that Burmese military conduct in states such as Shan, Kachin and in the south-east is under international scrutiny, as in Rakhine.
