Foreign Secretary welcomes the swearing in of National Democracy MPs in Burma

FCO Press Release

The Foreign Secretary, William Hague, said:

"I welcome the swearing in of National League for Democracy MPs, including Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, at the Burmese Parliament today.


"This is a truly historic event and another positive outcome of the reforms begun by President Thein Sein a year ago. The Prime Minister and myself witnessed the reforms first hand during our recent visits to Burma.


"Today's events are a further step towards a fully representative democracy in Burma. I look forward to the full participation of all elected members, and a spirit of inclusive and constructive engagement by all parties on the path of reform.


"A number of concerns remain, in particular the need to address the abuse of human rights, a significant number of political prisoners and the continuing conflict in Kachin State. I hope these important issues will soon be resolved."
