The UK continues to make representations to the Government of Myanmar for the voluntary, safe and dignified return of Rohingya refugees. In a statement on 23 January 2020, the former Minister for Asia and the Pacific encouraged the Government of Myanmar to abide by the International Court of Justice's provisional measures and implement the recommendations of the Independent Commission of Enquiry in order to protect the Rohingya and to bring the perpetrators of atrocities to justice. The British Ambassador to Myanmar reinforced these points with the Myanmar Minister for International Co-operation, Kyaw Tin and continues to raise this through engagement with the government.
