Malaysia sends humanitarian aid to Muslim Rohingyas

Friday, 30 December, 2016 - 14:45

Malaysia is preparing a flotilla carrying humanitarian aid to Myanmar's troubled Rakhine State, where Muslim Rohingyas are under pressure from the government forces.

The issue of the international registration of this flotilla has not yet been solved, but it is on its way to the Rakhine State, even if Myanmar refuses to reception and transfer of humanitarian aid. However, the President’s Office denies that it received the request.

This makes seriously worse already not good relationships between Myanmar and Malaysia, which, in turn, destabilizes the region.
