Iran urges quick global action on Rohingya genocide, sending relief


PV International Desk : Iran’s foreign minister has criticised the international community for remaining silent on the violence against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar and called for quick action “to end the genocide”.
“The international community has no excuse to allow the genocide of Rohingya Muslims to continue in front of our eyes,” Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted on Thursday.
He also demanded urgent action to address the plight of Rohingya Muslims, saying, “We must act now before it’s too late.”
The Iranian Red Crescent Society said on Thursday that it had set up a working group to help the Myanmar Muslims following an order by President Hassan Rouhani.
Hamid Jamaloddini, the society’s spokesman, said consignments of vital relief aid and medical items were ready to be dispatched to Myanmar, according to Iranian Presstv.
The Iranian official further noted that the society had informed the International Red Cross of its readiness to provide Rohingya Muslims who are in urgent need of living accommodations with residence.
