PM Khan to highlight Pakistan’s role, contribution to the OIC in keynote address

The 48th Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) conference has begun on Tuesday at Parliament House, Islamabad, with the Council of the Foreign Ministers (CFMs) of the OIC starting consultations to solve problems affecting the Muslim world.

The session’s theme is ‘Building Partnerships for Unity, Justice, and Development’ where more than a hundred resolutions will be deliberated upon during the two-day session.

Addressing the session, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi welcomed the OIC foreign ministers saying it was a prideful moment for Pakistan to host the 48th session in 2022.

“The OIC is the collective voice of nearly two billion Muslims. It is the bridge among the Muslim nations and between the Muslim world and the international community,” he said.

The OIC would create awareness on Islamophobia on a global scale and present solutions via collective action, Qureshi said.
