DUBAI: Saudi's King Salman has ordered the payment of $15 million aid for the Rohingya refugees fleeing from
Myanmar as a result of genocide and torture.
The announcement came in a statement to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) following a meeting of the Saudi Cabinet, which was briefed by Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Rabiah, general supervisor of Riyadh-based King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Aid on the situation in Myanmar with the Muslim minority Rohingya refugees that have been forced to flee.
The Saudi Cabinet renewed the Kingdom’s calls on the international community to take urgent action to stop the attacks and to allow the Myanmar Muslim minority their basic human rights.
Rohingya Muslims have lived in Myanmar for generations, but have recently been forced to flee as they are attacked in their homes, following a succession of attacks carried out by Muslim militants in August.
Security forces and allied mobs carried out retaliation attacks, burning down the homes of thousands of Rohingya Muslims, forcing 417,000 people to flee to neighboring Bangladesh.
Also attending were members of the National Council on US-Arab Relations and the Committee on cooperation between US Partnerships and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries at the US House of Representatives in Washington.
