(MENAFN - Arab News) The foreign ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) will hold their 39th meeting in Djibouti on Thursday. The three-day meeting will discuss the situations in Syria, Somalia, PalestinE, Myanmar, Mali and the African Sahel region.

"The ministers will hold a special session on the recent developments in Myanmar where many Rohingya Muslim villages came under attack by
Buddhist mobs forcing thousands to flee," the OIC said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the OIC is mobilizing efforts to have the issue of Rohingyas be addressed at the UN Security Council. "The OIC considers the deliberate and systematic violence against the Rohingya Muslims as ethnic cleansing and should be considered at the highest level by the international community," the statement said. Rohingya sources reported that between Oct. 21 and Oct. 26, over 30 Rohingya villages and 5,086 houses in Kyauk Phyu, Kyauk Taw, Minbyar, Rambray, Pauktaw, and Myauk-U townships in Southern Rakhine state were torched.

The OIC is continuing its efforts to deliver humanitarian aid to the affected victims of the violence through NGOs despite the recent announcement by the Myanmar government that it would not allow the OIC to open a humanitarian coordination office in Rakhine state.

The announcement was a disappointment to the OIC because it has signed an agreement with the government to open the office.
