A resolution titled “Situation of the Rohingya Muslim Community in Myanmar” has been adopted unanimously to keep the momentum in exerting continuous pressure on Myanmar authorities to create an environment for willful, safe, sustainable and dignified return of the Rohingya to their homeland.
The resolution was adopted during the 48th Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) held in Islamabad, Pakistan from March 22-23.
The situation of the Rohingya has not improved despite the efforts and calls of the OIC and the international community, Secretary-General of the OIC Hissein Brahim Taha noted, pointing out that Myanmar continues to turn a blind eye to the horrific violations against the Rohingya’s rights and did not fulfilled its international obligations.
He pointed out that this case sends a strong message to the international community about the Organization’s collective and coordinated work to support the Rohingya people, as well as its firm commitment to global ideals and principles of justice and accountability for human rights violations, according to the OIC statement.
The OIC chief also stressed that the Rohingya case is one of the top priorities on the OIC’s agenda, one that the Organization has been following for over two decades.
