EU renews Myanmar sanctions for 1 year

The EU has renewed its remaining sanctions on Burma/Myanmar for a year, until 30 April 2017.  The sanctions impose an embargo on providing Burma/Myanmar with arms and goods that might be used for internal repression.   Before April 2013, the EU also had trade, financial, and targeted sanctions in place, but those have now been lifted (see previous blog).

See Decision (CFSP) 2016/627 amending Decision 2013/184/CFSP.
