The approval was given at a meeting at the UN Headquarters in New York on Tuesday. The ambassadorial-level meeting discussed current situation of beleaguered Rohingya community.

A delegation of the OIC-group also met with the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and apprised him of their serious concerns over the oppression of Rohingya Muslims.

The delegation urged the UN Secretary General to take up the issue with UN Security Council. Rohingya Muslims have been forced into the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea to seek refuge in Malaysia and Indonesia.
