India: Burma

Volume 461: debated on Monday 18 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent discussions she has held with representatives of the Indian Government on the situation in Burma. (143232)

My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary has had no recent discussions with the Indian Government about Burma.

We raise Burma at official level with the Government of India as part of our regular dialogue with the Indians on regional security. We encourage India to use their contacts with the regime to make strong messages on the need to restore democracy and respect human rights.

Most recently, I raised Burma with the Indian Minister of State in the Ministry of External Affairs in New Delhi on 27 November 2006.
