UK Foreign Secretary Visited Myanmar for Talks

Britain’s Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson arrived in Nay Pyi Taw on January 20 for talks with the Myanmar government.

Johnson led the British delegation to Nay Pyi Taw, the first visit to the country by a British Foreign Minister in five years. He met with leader and Nobel Prize winner Suu Kyi, members of the Rakhine Commission and representatives from various ethnic groups to discuss the peace process to end violence in the Rakhine region where the military has been wrongly accused of torching villages and killing, raping and arbitrarily detaining civilians. The UK Foreign Secretary visited the Shwedagon Pagoda, as well as Yangon General Hospital.
