Malaysia, Morocco, Sudan and Turkiye participated in the visit.

-Requesting the Member Parliaments to raise the level of coordination and cooperation among them in international fora, and calling for prosecuting the perpetrators of atrocities and violations, and bringing them to international justice.

-Enhancing political attention for the sake of intensifying international action to pressure the government of Myanmar in order to reach a political solution to prevent the flow of refugees, and prepare the atmosphere for the return of the refugees to their homes.
