The access required for necessary independent monitoring by UN agencies is also not in place.</p><p> </p><p>Minister Field has raised our concerns with the Bangladesh Foreign Minister and Burmese Minister for International Cooperation Kyaw Tin on 1 November. He stressed the UK's assessment that conditions in Rakhine State were not currently conducive to refugee returns.
