Motion text

That this House welcomes the first formal discussion on Burma held by the United Nations Security Council in September 2006; appreciates the efforts made by the British and American governments to secure those discussions; notes that the human rights situation in Burma continues to deteriorate and that there is no indication that the regime is willing to reform of its own volition; calls on the Government to do everything in its power to secure a binding Security Council resolution on Burma that would require the government of Burma to work with the Secretary-General's office in implementing a plan for national reconciliation and a restoration of a democratically-elected government; requests that the Secretary-General remain engaged with the dispute resolution process and that he report to the Security Council on a regular basis; urges the government of Burma to ensure immediate, safe and unhindered access to all parts of the country for United Nations and international humanitarian organisations to provide assistance to the most vulnerable groups, including internally displaced persons; calls for the immediate unconditional release of Aung San Suu Kyi and all prisoners of conscience; and further calls for an immediate end to attacks on civilians and ethnic minorities.
