Iranian urge UN action on Rohingya Muslim

TEHRAN: A number of Iranian jurists and lawyers have urged the United Nations for an action to end the ongoing pressures and violence against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

In a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres , 70 Iranian jurists and lawyers asked the UN to take practical action to address the plight of Myanmar Muslims and do something beyond an expression of concern.

The letter also makes a reference to the UN human rights office's report on the dire situation in Myanmar for serious action by the UN.

Last week, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has allocated 300,000 U.S. dollars to improve the living condition of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

Iranian officials have repeatedly voiced readiness to construct emergency camps and field hospitals for the refugees on Bangladesh's border with Myanmar.
