OIC to continue its support for ICJ case over Rohingya genocide

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has said it will remain beside Bangladesh in resolving the Rohingya crisis as well as continue its support regarding Rohingya genocide case with International Court of Justice (ICJ) filed by Gambia.

The pledge was made while a high level OIC delegation led by its Assistant Secretary General for Political Affairs Youssef Aldobeay called on Foreign Minister Dr A K Abdul Momen at foreign ministry on Monday.

During the meeting the OIC delegation profoundly appreciated Bangladesh government for the humanitarian assistance provided to more than 1.1 million forcibly displaced Myanmar nationals.

They applauded the initiatives taken by Bangladesh in relation to Bhashan Char and commended the role of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, referring her as the “Mother of Humanity”.

The foreign minister briefed the delegation on the overall construction of Bhashan Char’s infrastructure which will now be used as a relocation center for around 100,000 Rohingya.

He urged the OIC to strengthen its efforts in relation to early repatriation of the Rohingya people who are currently taking shelter in Bangladesh.
