Council adopts new Conclusions on Myanmar

10 December 2018

Today, the Council adopted conclusions on the situation in Myanmar/Burma. 

Most notably, the Council expresses deep concern over the findings of the independent international fact-finding mission (FFM) of the UN Human Rights Council which conclude thatgross human rights violations were committed in Kachin, Rakhine and Shan states, in particular by the Myanmar/Burma military (Tatmadaw).

The European Union has consistently called for the accountability of those responsible for such crimes.

The Council further welcomes the cooperation extended so far to the UN Secretary General Special Envoy, and reaffirms its continued strong support for Myanmar/Burma's democratic transition, peace and national reconciliation process and inclusive socio-economic development.
