The European Union remains a strong and committed supporter of Myanmar/Burma’s democratic transition.
The humanitarian and human rights situation in Rakhine State remains extremely serious. The EU reiterates its call for the immediate end of all violence and the establishment of non-discriminatory rule of law and civilian administration in Rakhine State. The restoration of humanitarian access for the United Nations and international aid agencies is critical. Conditions for voluntary, safe and dignified return to their places of origin have to be put in place.
The EU will continue to lead the work of the donor community for the Rohingya refugees because we believe that human dignity and peoples’ lives have to be protected, said Mogherini.

Education is lifesaving. Education is crucial for both the protection and healthy development of girls and boys affected by crises. It can rebuild their lives; restore their sense of normality and safety, and provide them with important life skills. It helps children to be self-sufficient, to be heard, and to have more influence on issues that affect them. It is also one of the best tools to invest in their long-term future, and in the peace, stability and economic growth of their countries.
