star this property answer text <p>We continue to work closely with the National Unity Government (NUG) and a range of other pro-democracy actors. The NUG is an important voice for many people in Myanmar and we strongly support all those calling for a return to democracy. The former Minister for Asia met with Dr Zaw Wai Soe, the NUG's Minister for Health and Education on 24th May. Dr Zaw Wai Soe also met with another minister, parliamentarians and officials during his trip to the UK. During the meetings we emphasised the UK's condemnation of the coup and highlighted our ongoing efforts to respond to the crisis. The former Minister for Asia also spoke to Daw Zin Mar Aung, the NUG's Foreign Minister on 7 March. We will continue to support those who are helping to protect civic space and human rights to sustain the foundations for democracy and build a common vision for the future.</p> more like this

We continue to urge China to respect all fundamental rights across the People's Republic of China, including in Tibet, in line with both its own constitution and the international frameworks to which it is a party. On 14 June, a concerted UK lobbying effort helped to secure the support of a record 47 countries for a statement at the Human Rights Council that highlighted the human rights situation in Tibet and called on China to comply with obligations with regard to the protection of human rights.</p> more like this

Following the announcement of the execution of four pro-democracy and opposition leaders on 25 July, we issued a joint statement with our allies in the EU, US, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, South Korea, Canada and Norway, and coordinated a UN Security Council Press Statement, to condemn the regime's actions in the strongest terms.</p> more like this
