Iran humanitarian aid to be distributed among Myanmar Muslim refugees


Secretary-General of the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) Ali Asqar Peivandi, who is visiting Bangladesh, said on Wednesday, 'The 30-ton consignment, which included medicine and foodstuff has been dispatched to Bangladesh, IRNA reports.

The Iranian officials also voiced the IRCS readiness to dispatch more humanitarian aids for displaced Rohingya Muslims. 

Peivandi said, 'I am to visit the camps of displaced Rohingya Muslims in Bangladesh to pave the way for establishing field hospitals and new camps for the crisis-stricken Muslims of Rohingya.'

Some 50,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh since the beginning of the violence of the Myanmar forces against the minority on August 25.

The Myanmar government has also been indifferent to the global warnings and requests by international organizations and world public opinion on stopping the violence against the minority community in the country.

Myanmar has so far refused to give access to UN fact-finding missions to investigate on accusations of torture, fire attacks and massacres against Rohingya Muslims in the southeast Asian nation.
