ISLAMABAD – In a big diplomatic achievement, OIC special session to be held in Pakistan over Occupied Kashmir conflict.
Saudi Arabia on Saturday assured to convene a special meeting of the foreign ministers of member states of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on the ongoing atrocities in occupied Kashmir in Islamabad.
According to sources, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud at the request of Prime Minsiter Imran Khan assured to hold a meeting of OIC pertaining to Kashmir matter in April 2020 through Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan, who toured the country on December 26.
The meeting is expected to also include the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Turkey, Indonesia, Qatar and other countries.
The foremost priority of the meeting will be the current situation in the occupied valley, which will be followed by controversial citizenship bill in India and also to shed light on the matter about protecting the rights of Muslim countries.
The OIC FM meeting has been given a special status after the Kuala Lumpur Summit which took place earlier this month in Malaysia.
Muslim countries were expressing reservations on the less active role of the OIC, due to which the KL summit was seen as an alternative platform. Saudi Arabia has decided to mobilize the OIC. ------------------------------
