Sartaj sees OIC’s more vibrant role in future


ISTANBUL, April 13 (APP): Advisor to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz Wednesday described the 13th OIC Summit of pivotal importance as he saw a broader role for the organization in days ahead for resolving the problems of Muslim Ummah, forging unity to confront the menace of terrorism and uplift of people through an envisaged 10 year plan of action.

The Advisor, in an interview with APP, expressed the hope that the draft joint communique agreed by the Council of Ministers of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) countries would provide a road map for the member states to counter terrorism, Islamophobia and resolve their internal conflicts through better interaction.

“All members states have well realized that the issues confronting the Ummah require a broader cooperation and understanding and this Summit will have a clear roadmap for the member states to move ahead collectively,” he said mentioning to the 37 page communique that would
hopefully be adopted at the Summit where the heads of state and government will be meeting on Thursday and Friday.
