Sharif approves $5 million assistance for Rohingya Muslims

Islamabad, Jun 10 (IANS): Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has approved all the recommendations of the special committee to solve the plight of Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar including assistance of $5 mn, an official statement said here on Tuesday.
