Erdogan speaking at the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Science and Technology Summit held in Kazakhstan’s capital Astana, Sunday (September, 11), The Daily Sabah reported.
Erdoğan said that Muslim countries should work together, especially to end the suffering of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.
“We want to work together with governments of Myanmar and Bangladesh to get ahead of the ongoing humanitarian drama in the region. We have transmitted Bangladeshi authorities our aid offer and expressed our expectation for the necessary facilitation to be shown to Muslims fleeing to their soil to save themselves from repression and murders,” Erdoğan said.
The President added that international organizations, Muslim countries in particular, should struggle together with all means possible to end this cruelty.
Erdoğan also touched upon the ongoing spat between the Gulf countries and the tensions in Jerusalem (Al-Quds).
“What the Muslim world needs in this period is unity and solidarity. The crisis in the Gulf region has upset us deeply. We want the crisis in the Gulf to be solved as soon as possible,” he said. (T/RS2/RS5)
