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.

The announcement was made after Islamic nations have expressed concerns over the treatment of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

Sharif would be writing a letter to the UN secretary general drawing his attention to the issue, said the statement issued by the prime ministers office.

The Pakistan government formed a high-level committee to explore ways on how to respond to the needs of the Rohingyas.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Senate passed a resolution condemning the persecution of the Rohingya Muslims and called for declaring June 12 a day of solidarity with them.

The resolution said that Rohingya Muslims were being denied of their natural right of residing in a country where they have been living for centuries.
