TEHRAN: Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa and Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri have expressed concern over the ongoing Rohingya Muslim crisis in Myanmar, calling for Muslim world action to help end the plight of the Muslim minority.

In a telephone conversation on Sunday, the two top generals discussed ways to enhance cooperation between the two countries' armed forces to help the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

They also called on the Muslim world to do more and help stop the "unfavourable" and "inhumane" treatment of the Rohingya community in the Southeast Asian country.

According to a Iranian news agency, Baqeri and Bajwa said that military and non-military organisations of Muslim countries could mobilise their forces and facilities to speed up the dispatch of humanitarian relief to the persecuted Muslims in Myanmar.

The Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar have long faced severe discrimination and were the targets of violence in 2012 that killed hundreds and drove about 140,000 people from their homes to camps for the internally displaced.

On September 12, the UN refugee agency said the number of Rohingya Muslim refugees that have fled recent violence in Myanmar had spiked to about 370,000.
