Burma/Myanmar –Inauguration of new Parliament (February 1, 2016)

France applauds the inauguration of the new Parliament following the elections of November 8, 2015.

This is a new and important step that has just been taken. It is now up to Parliament to continue with reforms leading to a full restoration of democracy.

We offer all our encouragement to the Burmese authorities and welcome the climate of dialogue prevailing in the country.
