The European Union and its member states accredited to Myanmar/Burma welcome the release of an important number of political prisoners on 22 January 2016 and the simultaneous decision to commute 77 death sentences into prison terms.

The objectives pursued by the Annual Action Programme 2015 for Myanmar are to;

i) contribute to poverty reduction and improved food security and nutrition in selected areas of Myanmar;

ii) contribute to a more preventive, balanced and professional approach by law enforcement agencies based on international best practices and respect of human rights; and

iii) contribute to lasting peace, security, stability and sustainable development.




The European flag symbolises both the European Union and, more broadly, the identity and unity of Europe.

It features a circle of 12 gold stars on a blue background. They stand for the ideals of unity, solidarity and harmony among the peoples of Europe.

Le drapeau européen est le symbole de l'Union européenne et, plus largement, de l'identité et de l'unité de l'Europe.

Le drapeau européen est constitué d'un cercle de douze étoiles dorées sur fond bleu. Les étoiles symbolisent les idéaux d'unité, de solidarité et d'harmonie entre les peuples d'Europe.

Le nombre d'étoiles n'est pas lié au nombre d'États membres, bien que le cercle soit symbole d'unité.
