The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has followed the US Administration’s announcement of its plan for peace in the Middle East, and has declared that the fundamental building block towards a solution to the Israelo-Palestinian conflict must be firmly anchored in international law, the relevant UN resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative.

The OIC Secretary General, Dr. Yousef Al Othaimeen, reaffirmed the OIC’s principled commitment and sustained support to international efforts for the achievement of peace based on the vision of the Two-State solution in accordance with agreed international references such as to enable the Palestinian people to exercise their legitimate national rights and lead to a just and comprehensive peace.

The OIC Secretary General laid stress on the fact that the Holy City of Al Quds/Jerusalem remains, conformably to UN resolutions and international legitimacy, an integral part of the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967, and any alteration to the existing historical, legal or political status of the City of Al Quds Al Sharif/Jerusalem constitutes a violation of international law and conventions.
