"Iran's official diplomacy in Myanmar has been de-escalation of conflicts between the Buddhists and Muslims," Iran's Accredited Ambassador to Myanmar Mohsen Mohammadi said on Sunday.
He reiterated that Iran has pursued the policy of acting with a long-term view and beyond the recent crisis in Myanmar.
"Iran has paid special attention to Rohingya Muslims and their miseries and has always taken proper measure, but at the same time has tried that this crisis does not turn into something between the Buddhists and the Muslims," Mohammadi added.
In relevant remarks earlier in October, Deputy Foreign Minister Ebrahim Rahimpour underlined that Iran is finalizing a comprehensive plan to assist the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.
"Along with a group of other foreign ministry officials in a meeting, the latest developments in Myanmar were discussed and the participants exchanged views on how to create a roadmap for delivering the short- and long-term humanitarian assistance of Iran to Muslim minority there," Rahimpour said.
The Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar have long been subjected to discrimination in Buddhist-majority country, which denies them citizenship.
Myanmar's government regards them as illegal migrants from Bangladesh, even if they have lived in the country for generations.
Refugee camps near Bangladesh's border with Myanmar already had about 300,000 Rohingya before the upsurge in violence last month and are now overwhelmed.
Tens of thousands of new arrivals have nowhere to shelter from monsoon rains.
Those flocking into Bangladesh have given harrowing accounts of killings, rape and arson by Myanmar's army. Myanmar authorities deny any wrongdoing.
Most have walked for days and the UN says many are sick, exhausted and in desperate need of shelter.
