Istanbul, MINA – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday (September, 4) he would bring up the plight of Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslims at the next UN General Assembly meeting in New York later this month.
Speaking to locals in Istanbul’s Catalca district on the final day of the Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday, Erdogan said, Middle East Monitor (MEMO) reported.
“I will bring up what is happening in Myanmar at the UN General Assembly on September 19 in the broadest way,” he said. “We will speak about all this with the leaders there.”
As the rotating president of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Erdogan said that so far he has spoken to the leaders of around 20 countries about the issue.
The Turkish Red Crescent (Kizilay) and the Prime Ministry Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) will continue sending humanitarian aid to the suffering Rohingya Muslims in southeast Asia, the president added. (T/RS2/RS5)
