An Iranian top diplomat has called on Myanmar’s government to put an end to the ongoing atrocities against Rohingya Muslims in the country.

“We will not tolerate victimization of Muslims in anywhere and we call on Myanmar’s government to control the situation and prevent the crimes against Muslims,” Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Abbas Araqchi said on Thursday.

He made the remarks in an interview on the sidelines of a meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur to discuss the plight of Rohingya Muslims.

He touched on the killing and displacement of Muslims in clashes with Buddhist extremists. “We do not believe such clashes have religious roots. However, the important thing is that Muslims are the victims there,” he said.
The Iranian diplomat said the Rohingya suffer extreme hardship due to the fact that Myanmar does not recognize them as citizens, calling on the country to resolve the issue by granting citizenship to the Muslim minority.

The OIC, which represents 57 countries, was to hold an emergency meeting in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday to discuss regional issues, including the ongoing military crackdown against the Rohingya.
