Ethnic Cleansing of Rohingya in Myanmar

The UAE has called on the international community to step in to end the tragedy the Rohingya Muslim minority is undergoing in Myanmar.

“The UAE is deeply concerned about the ethnic violence in Myanmar which has claimed hundreds of lives of the Rohingya Muslim minority group and left thousands of them homeless, bringing  a renewed chapter of severe suffering,” Foreign Minister Shaikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan said in a letter addressed to foreign ministers of the UN Security Council’s member states; the Association of South-east Asian Nations; New Zealand; Canada; Japan and India as well as to Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs; Dr Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, Secretary-General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation; Dr Nabil Al Araby, Secretary-General of the League of Arab States; and Dr Abdullatif Rashid Al Zayani, Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council. Shaikh Abdullah said the international community should urge the government of Myanmar to  take adequate measures to cease infringements of Rohingya’s rights and refrain from acts that disregard principles of universal basic human rights and international conventions. He stressed that Rohingya’s basic rights should be respected in a responsible manner.
