Shura Council’s Arab and Foreign Affairs and National Security Committee, headed by Ridha Fahmi, heard statements by Alaa El-Kashef, Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia; and Rania Al-Banna, Assistant Secretary of State, on the issue of persecution and massacres committed against Muslims of Burma, over two million people.

Alaa El-Kashef said, "Egypt did not spare any effort in supporting Muslims of Burma. We did not stand idly by with regard to this important issue.

"The Egyptian Foreign Ministry issued three statements in which it strongly condemned the massacres and the burning of Muslim families and homes. We tasked our ambassador to inform the government in Burma of our total rejection of the genocide being committed against Muslims there. Egypt’s Foreign Minister met with government officials in an attempt to develop a plan to solve the crisis. We summoned the Myanmar Ambassador in Cairo and expressed Egypt’s deep shock and concern regarding the ongoing violent events."
