Burma: Democracy

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 29 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent meetings UK Government officials have had with (a) the Karen National Union, (b) the Kachin Independence Organisation and (c) other ethnic organisations working for democracy in Burma. (130606)

There have been no meetings with representatives from the Karen National Union or the Kachin Independence Organisation.

Officials are in regular contact with a range of organisations working for democracy in Burma.

Most recently, I met representatives from the Chin Human Rights Organisation, Women's League of Chinland and Kachin National Organisation on 24 January.
