The Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu on Saturday said that they would place pressure on the Myanmar administration so violence against Muslims in that country ends.
Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu on Saturday met with the Egyptian President Muhammad Mursi in Cairo as part of his talks in the country.
Speaking to reporters after meeting President Mursi, Ihsanoglu said that he was deeply concerned about the incidents taking place in Syria.
"The Syrian administration must act by thinking about its own people and not its personal interests," Ihsanoglu stressed.
"President Mursi and I discussed the problems in the Muslim world and acts of violence against Muslims in Myanmar. The OIC got in touch with NGOs in Myanmar and all international human rights organizations and we will send assistance to Muslims in Myanmar," Ihsanoglu noted.
"We will place pressure on the Myanmar administration so they can end acts of violence against Muslims and protect the Muslims," Ihsanoglu stated.
"Call from Iran for Myanmar"
Meanwhile, the Iranian regime is taking initiatives at the OIC and the UN to help the Muslims in Myanmar.
In a letter sent to the UN Secretary General, Iran's Permanent Representative at the UN, Muhammad Hazai, asked the UN to immediately take action so acts of violence against the Muslims in Myanmar end.
In his letter, Hazai said that many civilians were massacred in Myanmar, mosques and homes were demolished.
It is unacceptable to see the Muslims in Myanmar being taken away from territory where they have lived for centuries, Hazai stressed in his letter.
Hazai warned that the silence of the international community vis-a-vis the massacres in Myanmar led to the violation of the basic rights of the Muslims and made the situation worse.
