Turkish FM Travels to Burma
9 August 2012
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has left for Burma to discuss possible aid distribution to members of the Muslim Rohingya minority. He told reporters on Wednesday he would hold talks with senior officials before visiting camps sheltering people displaced by violence in Arakan State in June, when clashes between Buddhists and Muslims left dozens dead and tens of thousands homeless. Meanwhile, Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa has said that Burma is considering allowing the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to investigate the situation in Arakan State.
