OIC Executive Committee Holds Extraordinary Meeting Over Grave Situation in Palestine

Date: 09/07/2014

The General Secretariat of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation in Jeddah will host an expanded extraordinary meeting of the Executive Committee at the level of foreign ministers on Thursday 10 July 2014 over the grave situation in the occupied State of Palestine, including Al-Quds Al-Sharif.

The Secretary General of the OIC, Mr Iyad Ameen Madani, extended invitations to foreign ministers of OIC Member States to attend the meeting. This is coming in light of the escalating sinister Israeli campaign in the entire Palestinian territories, the collective punishment of the Palestinian people and the burning of the Palestinian boy Muhammad Abu Khadir.

A final communiqué is expected to be issued at the end of the OIC Executive Committee meeting containing line of action for the concerned ministers at regional and international fora.

The Executive Committee consists of the Islamic Summit troika – Egypt, Senegal and Turkey, the Council of Foreign Ministers troika – Saudi Arabia, Guinea and Kuwait, and the OIC Secretary General.
