The Council of the European Union decided on 29 April 2019 to extend the restrictive measures in place on Myanmar for a further year.
The sanctions regime includes an embargo on arms and equipment that can be used for internal repression, an export ban of dual-use goods for use by the military and border guard police, and export restrictions of equipment for monitoring communications that might be used for internal repression. It also prohibits the provision of military training to and military cooperation with the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw). The prolongation also covers targeted restrictive measures on 14 individuals for serious human rights violations, or association with such violations, committed against the Rohingya population.
