OIC urges Myanmar to protect rights of Rohingya Muslims

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation on Thursday urged Myanmar's government to ensure it protected the rights of Rohingya Muslims. 

The OIC, which represents 57 states, told Myanmar, "we call on the Myanmar government to ensure human rights for the Rohingyas."

"Myanmar can't deny the human rights of Rohingyas. We also call on the Myanmar government to ensure citizenship for the Rohingyas," the OIC representative, Yousef bin Ahmad Al-Othaimeen was quoted by Reuters as saying. 

"Myanmar should sit with Bangladesh, Indonesia and Malaysia to find a roadmap for the solution of the crisis," he added.
