Geneva: The UAE condemns the violations of the rights of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar and the recent acts of violence against them which included killings, threats and displacing innocent people and burning down their houses and villages, according to Ambassador Obaid Salem Al Zaabi, Permanent Representative of the UAE to the United Nations and other International Organisations.

The UAE, represented by Shaikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Foreign Minister, was the first country to call the international community to take steps to protect Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslims and stop violence against them through supporting initiatives by OIC and calling the UN Human Rights Council to hold an extraordinary meeting on Rohingya Muslims human rights, Al Zaabi said at a meeting for the Ambassadors of the member countries of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Geneva on Tuesday to discuss human rights in Myanmar.

At the meeting, the UN’s High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Antonio Guterres gave a presentation on the humanitarian situation of Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslims.

The UAE Ambassador also said the UAE backs a decision by the OIC’s 4th extraordinary summit in Makkah, Saudi Arabia which was held on August 14, to set up a contact team to study the issue of Rohingya Muslims.

Makkah summit is the fourth emergency conference to be convened by OIC since it was formed in 1969.

  1. Rakhine ultra nationalist and RNDP members through out Arakan State ere responsible for this violence and they should be taken to the court of justice. Aung San Suu Kyi should speak in the name of justice regarding Arakan violence. Now Kyauk-ni-maw village was burnt by RNDP party members and anti-Muslims group, why government of Myanmar is not taking action uptill now. Muslims are killing day by day and also destroying their properties. Why not Myanmar government stop it at once. Are they purposely doing it?
    Or What?
