The Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu on Wednesday sent a letter to the President of Myanmar, Thein Sein and the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and asked for their assistance in ending violence against Rohingya Muslims.
In a statement released Wednesday, the OIC said that Ihsanoglu's letter to Sein was written so that pressure against the Muslims in Myanmar ended.
Ihsanoglu asked Sein to provide security for the Rohingya Muslims.
Ihsanoglu called on Sein to facilitate speedy investigation on the attacks on Rohingya Muslims and to try those responsible for the attacks in courts of law.
"The OIC is ready to provide any assistance to Myanmar in this regard," Ihsanoglu stressed in his letter to President Sein.
In his letter to Ban Ki-moon, Ihsanoglu requested from Ban to use his office to be more influential on the government of Myanmar.
"The OIC is ready to provide any assistance that may be needed by the United Nations," Ihsanoglu underlined in his letter to Ban.
