Dr Momen said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, OIC Secretary General and the President of Gambia sent a joint letter to the member states recently seeking support for the fund created by the OIC.
"They (OIC) have taken a leading role. Tomorrow they will visit the Rohingya camps," Momen said, adding that they discussed the Rohingya crisis and the necessity of unity among the Muslims.
The OIC Secretary General said in fact Bangladesh is a very important country for the OIC member states.
"We are here to convey our thanks for the tremendous efforts done by Bangladesh government. These Rohingya people are suffering. They deserve peace, security and better life," said Hissein Brahim.
