PM Abbasi calls upon OIC to halt atrocities against Rohingya Muslims

Foreign minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman said this in delivering Malaysia's statement at the "Organisation of Islamic Cooperation Contact Group on the Rohingya Muslim Minority in Myanmar" meeting held in NY.

Britain said that it had suspended its educational training courses for the Myanmar military due to the ethnic violence in Rakhine state.

Rohingyas are denied citizenship in the Buddhist-majority Myanmar and regarded as illegal immigrants, despite claiming roots that date back centuries.

Darusman said he was he hopeful there would be progress in his request to enter Myanmar, following an address by its leader Aung San Suu Kyi from which he said two main points emerged.

The Principle of Non-Refoulement prohibits states from sending back refugees to a country where their life may be in danger. The government of India is accusing us of being a security threat.

The programmes are described as "on a small scale", with the MoD adding "meaningful change will take time" as the courses aim to expose Myanmar's military to "how modern militaries operate in a democracy".

"People are too invested in the last five years of thawing, which is understood by everyone to be strategically sound", said the official, who declined to be identified. This forced Bangladesh to ask all refugees to go home.

He said Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina would broach the Rohingya issue at the United National General Assembly session later this week.

The $32 million brings the total the USA has given in humanitarian aid for Myanmar refugees and related issues this budget year to roughly $95 million. She said that, "we don't know how long does it take to issue visa on arrival", because we are anxious Bengali people from Rakhine will enter the country. There, horrific violence, including killing, rape and torching property, has been taking place against the minority Muslims, according to reports and eyewitnesses.

Abdullah Al Rabeeah, adviser at the Royal Court and general supervisor of the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Work, said that King Salman has allocated US$15 million to ease the suffering of Rohingya fleeing Myanmar amid a military crackdown. "She will seek immediate cessation of violence in Rakhine state in Myanmar and ask the United Nations secretary general to send a fact-finding missing to Rakhine", said Nazrul Islam, a spokesman for the premier, on Saturday.

The process is similar to a hearing, with the Myanmar ethnic groups testifying before a seven-jury member in Kuala Lumpur from September 18-22 at Universiti Malaya's Faculty of Law.
