Kashmir figures at OIC meeting

Putrajaya (Malaysia) Oct. 11. Kashmir figured at a meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Conference officials ahead of next week's summit, when its secretary-general bracketed it with Afghanistan even as Pakistan plans to press for a resolution on the issue.

In his opening speech to the preparatory meeting of the 57-member body's 10th summit, its secretary-general, Abdelouahed Belkeziz, enumerated the "challenges" facing the Islamic religion worldwide, namely terrorism, globalisation, human rights and the campaigns against Islam and Muslims and said these required the OIC's attention.

"Others include the situation in Afghanistan, Jammu and Kashmir, situation of Muslims in Azerbaijan, the Philippines and Somalia as well as the economic situation in the Islamic world in many others," he said. — PTI
