Condemning the atrocities committed against the Rohingya community, Maldives today ceased trade ties with Myanmar.

“The Maldives is deeply concerned by the recent cycle of violence that resulted the death of dozens of Rohingya Muslims and displacing several thousands,” a press release issued by Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Maldives on September 3 reads.

The Government of Maldives has decided to cease all trade ties with Myanmar, until the Government of Myanmar takes measures to prevent the atrocities being committed against Rohingya Muslims, according to the release.



The country requests the United Nations Secretary General and the United Nations Human Rights Council to look into the grave violations of human rights against the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.
