That this House condemns severely the persecution and systemic killing of Christian minorities in Myanmar's Kachin province by the Myanmar military and government militias; calls on Aung San Suu Kyi to pursue a ceasefire and ensure the safety of those threatened with persecution and displacement, which since April 2018 has seen over 6,800 people flee Kachin; denounces the Myanmar security forces and the Kachin Independence Army for the role they have played in the violence, and asserts that both sides should look to come to a peaceful resolution as soon as possible; calls on the international community to assist to mediate the situation; and demands the allowing of human rights and groups to enter the province so as to help those in need.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs.
