Statement from the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Europe and International Development: Humanitarian Crisis in Myanmar with regards to the Rohingya

This government has taken note of the motion regarding this issue submitted by the Green Party. The House can be assured that this government will treat this issue with the utmost severity. However, the Foreign Office will not currently take action to suspend the Ambassador from Myanmar at this current moment in time. We will continue to monitor any further developments that may arise as the crisis unfolds before making any decisions on further actions we will take.

This government urges the Myanmar government to keep this crisis from escalating and to stop the persecution of this minority group within its borders. At the same time, we also have to recognise that there has been a minority group within the Rohingya that has resorted to armed conflict to combat the government. We categorically condemn any form of violence on both sides and hope that a peaceful solution can be reached to end this crisis. The Foreign Office applauds aid that has been provided to displaced peoples in Bangladesh by non-governmental organisations. As Bangladesh is a Commonwealth nation, the Foreign Office will send two planes of supplies to the refugee camps in order to help with the situation.

I am disappointed that the government have chosen not to suspend the Myanmar ambassador but I respect their decision nonetheless.

Nice to see the government actually responding to something the House puts forward at least

As some members said the motion submitted did nothing it's good to see that the government has managed to do less than that.

This could be better:
As Bangladesh is a Commonwealth nation, the Foreign Office will send two planes of supplies to the refugee camps in order to help with the situation.
This is merely a sticking plaster.

Other than that, aye.

At least they aren't making people poorer with this statement.
