Astana, Kazakhst, June 29 (Only Kashmir): Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov, delivering a speech in the 38th session of the OIC Foreign Ministerial Council, said that this year was specific because of substantial political processes and dramatic events all over the world.
The minister said that Azerbaijan remained concerned over situation in Palestine and reiterated its support to people of Palestine and their efforts to achieve peace, stability, and establishment of a sovereign and independent Palestinian state with Al-Quds as its capital.
“I would like to express our support to the initiatives taken in moving forward the resolution of Kashmir dispute and to express our concern with the continuing unjust isolation of Turkish Cypriots. Azerbaijan also supports the efforts undertaken by the Governments of Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, Somalia and other OIC Member States to restore peace, security and stability in these countries”, he maintained.
He said the current situation in a number of the OIC member states, which faces numerous risks and challenges, remains a source of deep concern. “We are deeply concern over the recent political tensions in some of brotherly Arab countries but we do believe that Arab nations have enough political will and wisdom to overcome all these challenges”, he added.
I would also like to express once again Azerbaijan’s sincere gratitude to the Islamic Ummah and the OIC Secretary General for their vigorous support to the just cause of Azerbaijan in the ongoing armed conflict with Armenia as a result of which almost 20 percent of Azerbaijan’s territory still remains under occupation by Armenia.
Earlier, the 38th Foreign Ministerial meeting of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) kicked off in Kazakhstan. A number of Arab, African and Asian countries in their opening speeches called for unity among the OIC member states in solving the problems plaguing the Islamic world and the Muslims.
