The Ministerial Committee of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) for Accountability for Human Rights Violations against the Rohingya Minority in Myanmar held its second meeting this year on Thursday, 30 May 2019, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on the sidelines of the meeting of Foreign Ministers of the OIC Member States preparatory for the Fourteenth Islamic Summit Conference.

This was a follow-up to the Banjul meeting in The Gambia in February 2019. The Gambia and Bangladesh delivered statements as co-chairpersons of the Committee providing a detailed explanation of the current situation and developments of the Rohingya minority and refugees in the Bangladesh-Myanmar border area and the overall implications of the issue.

The Committee Members also reviewed the suffering of the Rohingya minority and the developments affecting their future in Myanmar and in diaspora countries in order to formulate a unified position of the OIC Member States towards the crisis.
