star this property answer text <p>I am appalled by the ethnic cleansing and persecution of the Rohingya, including reports of the Burmese military and local militia forcing hundreds of thousands of men, women and children from their homes and villages being burnt. The relentless denial of aid is a matter of life and death for those still in northern Rakhine. I have repeatedly called on the Burmese authorities to stop the violence in Rakhine state, and to allow full and unfettered humanitarian access to provide a lifeline to all those living in Rakhine State. Government officials continue to raise this at the highest levels with the Burmese Government.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>I’ve spoken to the Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary and reiterated the UK’s commitment to relieve the plight of the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. The issue is a complex one, but the UK has not shied away from its responsibility and we are working closely with the Government of Bangladesh to provide life-saving assistance to thousands of displaced men, women and children. Our initial support is already enabling food to reach 65,000 refugees, health care for 50,000, and emergency shelter for more than 26,000. We are also supporting 7,500 children, many of whom are at risk of sexual violence and trafficking.</p> more like this
