  • Myanmar – Situation in Rakhine state (12.02.14)

    France is concerned at the situation in Rakhine state. Sectarian tensions are being exacerbated by the humanitarian crisis and human rights violations facing Buddhist and Muslim communities – the vast majority of whom want peace, security and development.

  • Myanmar/Burma - Human Rights Watch report (22.04.13)

    We have taken note of the Human Rights Watch report, which accuses the Burmese authorities of having carried out a campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Rohingyas and reveals a number of disquieting facts. It is up to the Burmese authorities to shed full light on the communal violence that has been taking place in Rakhine State for a year now.

  • Burma – Unrest in Meiktila (22.03.13)

    France is concerned by the violence that took place in the town of Meiktila which has resulted in the death of around 20 people. It extends its condolences to the people of Burma and to the bereaved. France urges the parties involved to demonstrate tolerance and restraint, and has confidence in the Burmese government to swiftly restore calm.

  • Myanmar/ Burma – Train crash and earthquake (12.11.12)

    France extends its condolences to the Burmese authorities and people following the train crash that took place in the district of Shwebo, in the north of the country, and the tremors that hit the same region to the north of Mandalay.

  • Myanmar/ Burma – Situation in Rakhine state (12.11.12)

    We support the Burmese government’s efforts to restore security and to bring those responsible to justice. We also encourage the Burmese government to ensure access by the humanitarian agencies to all those in difficulty in Rakhine state.

  • Myanmar/ Burma - abolition of the censorship of media (20.08.12)

    We welcome this progress with respect to information and the freedom of expression, while noting that more work needs to be done in other areas: not all political prisoners have been released, hostilities have not ceased in Kachin State, and the humanitarian situation remains critical with respect to the Rohingyas in Rakhine State.
