(Reuters) - Britain’s Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday he had reiterated concerns about the treatment of the Rohingya Muslims in a call with Myanmar’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

“Need quick action now that Burma has agreed to (United Nations) oversight of refugee returns and a Commission of Inquiry into atrocities. Also called for military restraint & humanitarian access in Kachin & Shan,” Johnson said on Twitter.
