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

unstar this property answer text <p>Since the UN High Commissioner of Human Rights' statement on 11 September, our Ambassador has raised the situation in Rakhine with Burmese Ministers and has set out our concerns about the violence, the large scale displacement of civilians, and the need for improved humanitarian access. The Foreign Secretary had earlier spoken to State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi on 7 September in similar terms and to underline the need for any allegations of human rights abuses to be investigated. Subsequently, at his press conference on 14 September, the Foreign Secretary described the situation in Rakhine as an “abomination”, and urged the displaced Rohingya to be allowed back and for the abuse of their human rights and killings to stop.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK has a strong history of upholding and promoting the principles of international humanitarian law (IHL). The four Geneva Conventions of 1949 constitute the bedrock treaties of IHL. There are no plans to seek reform of these globally recognised Conventions. We believe that efforts should be directed primarily at improving compliance with IHL. To this end, we consistently call on states and non-state actors engaged in armed conflict to respect IHL and act in accordance with their obligations under it. We are also an active participant in the intergovernmental process, facilitated by the International Committee of the Red Cross and government of Switzerland, aimed at strengthening respect for IHL.</p> more like this
