star this property answer text <p>​The British Government has been consistently clear that we wish to see a free, fair and pluralistic election in Bangladesh. The Minister for Asia and the Pacific, Mark Field, has repeatedly encouraged the Government of Bangladesh and opposition parties to engage in an effective dialogue to this end, and the power to deliver it lies with them. Through our High Commission in Dhaka we have been clear that the Election Commission should be allowed to continue its important work without interference. We have consistently made the case for international oversight of the election and the EU has agreed to send an Election Expert Mission. Through the Department for International Development funding, the UK will also support local observation of the general election. The Foreign Secretary raised his concerns regarding the next election in Bangladesh with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina when they met at the UN General Assembly in New York on 24 September. In a call on 1 November with State Minister for Foreign Affairs, Shahriar Alam, the Minister for Asia and the Pacific again made the case for a free, fair and participatory election. As did I when I spoke to him on 23 November.</p>

star this property answer text <p>​The human rights situation in Shan and Kachin continues to be of concern to the UK. The Minister for Asia and the Pacific, Mark Field, made representations to the Burmese Ambassador on 11 July regarding the Burmese military's conduct in Kachin and Shan. The UK co-sponsored the UN Human Rights Council Resolution passed on 27 September which called for the immediate cessation of fighting and hostilities, of targeting civilians and of all violations and abuses of international human rights law and international humanitarian law, and of the harassment, intimidation, arrest, detention and prosecution of human rights defenders and activists in northern Burma, in particular in Kachin and Shan States. On 14 November the Minister for Asia and the Pacific reiterated that human rights for all of Burma remain a UK priority.</p> more like this

We have focused on those who were directly responsible for the units that have been identified by multiple reports from credible international organisations as committing human rights violations in Rakhine. We are currently in discussion with EU partners on adding other individuals to this sanctions listing.</p> more like this
