UNITED NATIONS, May 17 (KUNA) — Muslim nations at the UN will look into
measures to highlight the plight of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, making a
solemn effort to bring the subject to the General Assembly, Permanent
Representative of Egypt to the United Nations, Mootaz Ahmadein Khalil said.
In his letter to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and President of
the UN General Assembly Vuk Jeremic late Thursday, Khalil said that Muslim
nations around the globe condemned the heinous acts perpetrated against the
Rohingyas, stressing that the international community should act swiftly to end
those people’s suffering.
Muslim countries are contemplating a step to present a draft-resolution
to the upcoming meeting of the General Assembly if the plight of the Muslim
Rohingya continued, said Khalil.
He hoped that in the upcoming period, the situation of the Muslim
Rohingyas would become better, urging the UN to take some serious to solve the
matter. (end)
