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

'The UAE is deeply concerned about the ethnic violence in Myanmar which claimed hundreds of lives of the Rohingya Muslim minority group and left thousands of them homeless, bringing a renewed chapter of severe suffering,' H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Foreign Minister, said in a letter addressed to foreign ministers of the UN Security Council's member states, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), 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 Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), 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 (GCC).

Sheikh 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.

The UAE foreign minister urged the international community to reach a prompt end to this targeting in a way that achieves reconciliation and arrives at a final solution to the crisis. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
