Geneva: The UAE condemns the violations of the rights of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar and the recent acts of violence against them which included killings, threats and displacing innocent people and burning down their houses and villages, according to Ambassador Obaid Salem Al Zaabi, Permanent Representative of the United Arab Emirates to the United Nations and other International Organizations.

The UAE, represented by H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Foreign Minister, was the first country to call the international community to take steps to protect Myanmar's Rohingya Muslims and stop violence against them through supporting initiatives by OIC and calling the United Nations Human Rights Council to hold an extraordinary meeting on Rohingya Muslim's human rights, Al Zaabi said in an intervention at a meeting for the Ambassadors of the member countries of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Geneva on Tuesday to discuss human rights in Myanmar.

At the meeting, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Antonio Guterres gave a presentation on the humanitarian situation of Myanmar's Rohingya Muslims.

The UAE Ambassador also said the UAE backs a decision by the OIC's 4th extraordinary summit in Makkah, Saudi Arabia on 14 August, to set up a contact team to study the issue of Rohingya Muslims.

Makkah summit is the fourth emergency conference to be convened by OIC since it was formed in 1969.– Emirates News Agency, WAM
