Iran urges extraordinary OIC FM meeting


Tehran : Iran has called for holding an extraordinary meeting of OIC foreign ministers to review the inhumane crimes committed by the Zionist regime.

The request was made in a message issued by Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki to Secretary General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu.

Devising appropriate and urgent mechanisms to stop Zionists’ crimes was one of the main reasons behind Iran’s request for holding the OIC foreign ministerial meeting, Mottaki added.

The message was submitted to the OIC in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, by Iran’s ambassador and representative to the international body, Mostafa Boroujerdi.

Ihsanoglu on Wednesday strongly condemned the Zionist Regime’s recent aggression on Gaza Strip, killing tens of innocent Palestinians.

In a statement, the OIC urged the UN Chief Ban Ki-moon and other global entities to prevent Israeli regime from further killing of innocent Palestinian people.

In related developments, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in his consultations with Malaysian Prime Minister, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, as the current OIC chairman, has called for holding the foreign ministerial meeting urgently.
