The General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) welcomed the decree that President Mahmoud Abbas issued, setting parliamentary and presidential elections in all Palestinian territories, including eastern al-Quds. The decree is an important step, the General Secretariat considered, for the renewal of the legitimate national Palestinian establishment.

The OIC confirmed its support for national unity initiatives, calling on the international community to assist Palestinians in the conduct of successful elections, a crucial step in the building of their own independent and sovereign State within the 1967 borders, with eastern al-Quds as its capital, based on relevant UN resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative.
