Burma Campaign UK gave evidence to the Foreign Affairs Committee of the British Parliament. The Committee’s report, published today, makes 30 recommendations covering diplomatic and multilateral action, sanctions, humanitarian support, accountability and transparency, and Myanmar nationals in the UK.

The Committee concludes: “The Government has made positive steps on Myanmar, but there is far more it can do, given its lead role at the UN and upcoming status as an ASEAN Dialogue Partner. Through delegitimising the authority of the junta, applying severe and widespread economic pressure, stemming the flow of arms, and building broad coalitions to condemn the violence and support humanitarian assistance, the UK can have a real impact on resolving the violence and preventing the deaths of more people.”
