ali akber sahlyA senior Iranian lawmaker revealed on Monday that his country's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi is planning a visit to Myanmar following the massacre of Rohingya Muslims in the Southeast Asian country.

On the recent wave of violence against the Rohingya Muslims, Naqavi said, "The continuation of the atrocities in Myanmar is a source of regret, but even more regrettable is the silence of international and human rights' bodies that show no reaction to these crimes."

"It is a wonder how the organizations that issue resolutions and human rights' reports against the Islamic Republic on a daily basis do not see Myanmar's atrocities and do not show any reaction," he added.
Earlier on Friday , Myanmar's Vice Chairman of the Muslim National Democratic Party for Development (NDPD) Hla Thein unveiled that more than 100 Rohingya Muslims had been killed in a recent wave of sectarian violence in the country's western state of Rakhine.
Ion parallel, tensions have heightened across Rakhine, forcing Muslims to flee to emergency camps located in the state's capital Sittwe.

This comes as the Buddhist-majority government of Myanmar refuses to recognize Rohingyas and has classified them as illegal migrants.
It is worth mentioning that the Rohingyas are said to be Muslim descendants of Persian, Turkish, Bengali, and Pathan origins, who migrated to Myanmar as early as the 8th century.
