The General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation has expressed concern over the current crisis rocking Myanmar.
In a statement released on Monday February 1, 2021, OIC said, “We follow the current developments in Myanmar and reiterate our firm position in support of the Rohingya Muslim people”
The statement adds that OIC is closely following the accounts on the current developments in Myanmar.
“In this regard, the OIC General Secretariat reiterates its firm position in support of the Muslim Rohingya people and its call to ensuring their safety and security and recognizing their basic rights, including the right to full citizenship and the creation of conditions conducive to the voluntary, safe, dignified and sustainable return of all Rohingya refugees and IDPs,” the statement says.
The Organization therefore urged the international community to further support the various efforts aimed at achieving justice and accountability for the Rohingya and for the immediate cessation of all forms of violence against them.
