The Secretary-General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, Tan Sri Iyad Ameen Madani has said that Malaysia as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) Chair this year can play a vital role to solve the Rohingya crisis in Burma.
“Asean is the key in approaching this. We cannot do it without the help of Asean.
“As Malaysia is now the Chair of Asean, we certainly look forward to an active role, to more engagements and involvements. We need Malaysia,” he said.
Madani is currently on a three day Malaysia tour.
Malaysia has so far refrained from using their clout over Burma to urge an end of Muslim persecution in the country.
