The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is in the midst of arranging a visit to Myanmar for discussion on ways to resolve the crisis faced by minority Rohingya Muslims, reported Bernama News Agency. 

According to OIC, the visit will be led by Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, and a number of foreign ministers from the member states.

The ministers will assess the humanitarian needs of those affected by the violence in the Rakhine state, and also coordinate with the Myanmar authorities to develop a plan for it, it said in a statement.

The visit is part of the resolutions adopted at the recent OIC Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) meeting in Djibouti.

The 39th CFM urged member states to intensify efforts in the restoration of the Rohingya Muslims' nationality and citizenship rights, and the return of refugees, as soon as possible.
