Kuwait condemns violence against Rohingya Muslims

KUWAIT: Kuwait deplores in the strongest terms acts of violence, including killing, displacing, and terrorizing, the minority Rohingya Muslims in the western state of Rakhine in Myanmar, a highplaced source at the ministry of foreign affairs said here yesterday.

Tens of thousands of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar have been killed, their homes burned, their villages pillaged, all of which acts are a flagrant violation of basic human rights and tantamount to crimes against humanity, noted the source. Kuwait, in its commitment to
resolutions promulgated by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, urges the government of Myanmar to bear its responsibilities by moving quickly to protect the lives of the minority Rohingya Muslims and to implement a course where all ethnic and sects of the Myanmar society are treated equally, in the recent spirit of adopting the tools of democracy and reform, said the source.

Moreover, the source behooved the international community to also bear its responsibility in that regard by seeking relief for the beleaguered Rohingyas, including sending relief aid supplies to them as speedily as possible. — KUNA
