star this property answer text <p>​The Foreign Secretary met with Burmese State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi on 20 September in Burma and raised the importance of the safe, voluntary and dignified return of refugees to Rakhine State, and ensuring those responsible for human rights violations are held to account. I spoke with the Burmese Minister for International Cooperation Kyaw Tin on 1 November to: stress the UK's serious concern at the 30 October announcement of the Governments of Burma and Bangladesh that refugee repatriation would commence in mid-November; and underline that the Commission of Inquiry needs to be independent and credible, draw on all available evidence and lead to a judicial process.</p> more like this

The conference focused the minds of international governments on the issue and energized global cooperation to fight the illegal wildlife trade.

We made clear that we have zero tolerance for any human rights abuses or violations of international humanitarian law.

I welcome the Government of Tanzania's statement on 4 November making clear that such threats do not represent government policy, and that it will protect human rights as enshrined in the country's constitution.

I met UN Resident Coordinator in Yemen, Lisa Grande, on 8 November in Abu Dhabi to discuss the situation in Yemen and the UN's humanitarian work.</p><p>A nationwide ceasefire will only have an effect on the ground if it is underpinned by a political deal between the conflict parties.
