Malaysia is focusing on the humanitarian aspects of Rohingya crisis as its Prime Minister Najib Razak has sent a delegation with relief materials to Cox’s Bazar for Rohingyas.
Prime Minister Najib Razak flagged off the Rohingya Humanitarian Aid Mission and special delegation to visit Malaysian field hospital in Cox’s Bazar.
The team comprises 57 representatives from Malaysian Prime Minister’s Office, Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) and seven members of the media, led by ATM chief General Raja Mohamed Affandi Raja Mohamed Noor and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Goodwill Ambassador Michelle Yeoh.
The mission evaluated the impact of assistance provided by Malaysia so far, besides ensuring that the field hospital would be equipped with adequate resources to tackle the medical situation involving the Rohingya refugees, according to Malaysia’s official news agency Bernama.
It is also in line with the commitment of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) governments to provide medical supplies and facilities at the hospital.
Najib said the two Arab countries had joined Malaysia in showing Muslim solidarity and expressing concerns over the Rohingya issue.
In a brief message, he said: “Yes, they [Saudi Arabia and the UAE] are with us and we’ve proposed for them to join Malaysia in expressing their concerns.
“This is also to show Muslim solidarity and Alhamdulillah (All praise be to Allah), they responded very positively.”
