We have strengthened our Overseas Business Risk Guidance to warn companies of the risks associated with Myanmar's extractive sector. We will also continue to consider a range of sanctions targets that reduce the regime's access to finance, arms and equipment. To date, we have sanctioned the following mining companies for providing economic resources to the Myanmar Security Forces: Myanmar Gems Enterprise, Myanmar Pearl Enterprise, Mining Enterprise 1 and Mining Enterprise 2.</p> more like this

We are monitoring the situation closely. UK officials in Dhaka continue to engage with the Government of Bangladesh and the United Nations on this issue. We will continue to support affected Rohingya and other communities in Rakhine and Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. The UK is a leading donor to the Rohingya response. Since 2017, we have provided over £373 million to Bangladesh and over £30 million for the Rohingya and other Muslim minorities in Myanmar.</p> more like this

On 17 December, the Foreign Secretary called on the Chinese authorities to repeal the National Security Law and end the prosecution of all individuals charged under it.

star this property answer text <p>The UK Government considers China's sanctions to be completely unwarranted and unacceptable. When China imposed the sanctions in 2021, the former Minister for Asia summoned China's representative in the UK to the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office to lodge a strong, formal protest. We continue to urge the Chinese authorities at the highest levels to rescind the sanctions; the Foreign Secretary has called for their removal at both of his engagements with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi - in person at the Munich Security Conference on 16 February, and during their introductory call in December 2023. The former Foreign Secretary also consistently raised sanctioned Parliamentarians, including during his visit to Beijing in August 2023. The Government will continue to raise this issue in our engagement with China.</p> more like this
