We have welcomed the International Court of Justice’s decision on provisional measures, which was clear that Myanmar must do more to protect the Rohingya. This decision reinforces the UK’s policy on protecting the Rohingya. We urge Myanmar to comply with these measures in full. We urge Myanmar to implement the recommendations of the Annan-led Rakhine Advisory Commission and of the recent domestic Independent Commission of Enquiry.
