Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Friday met OIC Secretary General Dr. Yousef Al-Othaimeen in Niamey.

As per the Foreign office, the meeting took place in the run up to the 47th Session of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM).

During the meeting they discussed wide range of issues confronting the Muslim Ummah, including rising Islamophobia, the situation in Illegally Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) and Palestine, and challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Foreign Minister conveyed Pakistan’s deep concern at the aggravating human rights and humanitarian situation in IIOJK, and India’s moves to alter the demographic structure of the occupied territory, in clear violation of UN Resolutions and International Law including the fourth Geneva Convention.

He expressed appreciation at the OIC’s consistent and historic support for the Kashmir cause.

The Foreign Minister also apprised the Secretary General about the initiative by Pakistan for adoption of a resolution on Islamophobia by the 47th CFM.
