||<p>The UK has not been training the Burmese army. This is prohibited under the EU
Arms Embargo which we have supported. The UK was instrumental in the renewal of this
measure earlier this year.</p><p>The UK announced the suspension of our practical
defence cooperation with Burma on 19 September until there is an acceptable resolution
to the current situation in Rakhine. This cooperation consisted of educational courses
focused on governance, accountability, ethics, human rights and international law.
The UK has not provided any form of combat training to the Burmese Military.</p>
