Iran delivered the first part of its humanitarian aids to India’s Hyderabad in order to help Myanmarese Muslims.
Currently more than 250 Muslims from Myanmar are living in the camps erected by United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Hyderabad. Mahmoud Safari, Iranian envoy to India, paid a cheque valued 65,000.00 INR (1,160 USD) to the representative of Myanmarese refugees.
Safari condemned the recent toughness conditions of Muslims in Burma and asked international organizations to support these people. “We request Myanmarese government to end the current situation for Muslims in this country and provide a safe place for them.” Mahmoud Safari said. He also thanked Indian government to accept the refugees.
Faiz Al Rahman, representative of Myanmarese Muslims, appreciated the support from Islamic Republic of Iran.
Iran’s Red Crescent Society (IRCS) is also trying to send humanitarian aids to people in Burma.
