The government will not be supporting this motion. I can advise the Senate that since 1 February 2021 the Australian Federal Police International Command has not provided to the Myanmar police force any training, capacity building, advisory activities, or purchasing or gifting of any equipment or technology. The AFP International Command does not engage with the regime or military. Documents requested by this motion may reveal operational sensitivities and undermine the AFP's international partnerships, compromising Australia's national security interests and the security and protection of Australian citizens.
