Geneva, Sep. 16, 2019, SPA -- Ambassador of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the United Nations Dr. Abdulaziz Al-Wasel said that the Myanmar issue is one of the most important issues that concern the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which is following with great concern the suffering of Rohingya Muslims and other minorities across Myanmar.
We have been most distressed by what the Special Rapporteur has said about the appalling violations of international humanitarian and human rights law by the armed forces against innocent Rohingya in Myanmar.
Speaking to the Human Rights Council during the Interactive Dialogue on Violations in Myanmar, Al-Wasel praised Bangladesh's role in this issue, affirming the Kingdom's support for all its efforts in this regard. On the other hand, the Kingdom condemns in the strongest terms the suffering of Rohingya Muslims in Burma of terrorist massacres, brutal attacks, genocide and systematic destruction of many villages and houses which represents one of the worst and most brutal and bloody forms of terrorism against the Muslim minority and other minorities, calling for urgent action to stop the violence, and to stop these brutal practices and give the Muslim minority in Myanmar their rights without discrimination or ethnic classification.
