Permamant Appointee to the United Nations from the Maldives, Dr. Ali Naseer has said that the Maldives will push the UN to stop the human rights violations by the military of Myanmar against the Rohingya Muslims.
Responding to the opposition claims that the Maldives did not take part in a UN vote involving the Rohingya crisis in a Skype interview with PSM from New York, Dr. Naseer said that the Maldivian government would always stand with the Rohingya Muslims on the international stage at the UN. He said that the Maldives have taken part and voted in every resolution to stop the human rights violations against the Rohingya Muslims so far.
Dr. Naseer said that the Maldives would not hesitate to say or do anything that needs to be done at the UN and no other country can influence the actions.
The government has faced numerous criticism from the political oppositions for not taking part in the UN vote to stop the different war crimes and human rights violations worldwide.
The oppositions claim that the Maldives didn’t take part in the vote because the current government is influenced by China and show the China voted against in the UN vote as evidence.
