Pakistan condemns genocide of Rohingya Muslims

ISLAMABAD: The federal cabinet of Pakistan in a meeting on Thursday condemned the genocide of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, in the chair of the meeting in Islamabad, passed a resolution to this effect.

The resolution said Pakistan condemns the cold-blooded and callous genocide of innocent Rohingya Muslims, including women, children and even infants under the direct patronage of state institutions of Myanmar.

The resolution said brutal acts perpetrated against the unarmed civilian population not only constitute state terrorism but also question the collective human conscience across nations and societies.

The resolution called upon Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to take immediate steps to stop the atrocities being committed in Myanmar where her party is in power.

It also called upon the United Nations to take the lead in stopping immediately the genocide of Rohingya Muslims.

Myanmar officials blamed the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) for the burning of the homes. The group claimed responsibility for coordinated attacks on security posts last week that prompted clashes and a large army counter-offensive.
