OIC reaffirms support for the Kashmir cause


The 12th OIC Summit held in Cairo on Thursday adopted joint communique, which besides addressing issues of interest and concern to the Muslim Ummah, reaffirmed its principled support to the people of Jammu and Kashmir for realisation of their right to self determination.
Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar led the Pakistani delegation to the summit.
The communique also called upon India to allow the OIC fact-finding mission, the international human rights groups and humanitarian organisations to visit Jammu and Kashmir. The final Communique urged India to undertake independent investigation into the discovery of mass graves and ensure free and fair trial of those responsible for heinous crimes. In addition, the communique expressed deep concern on the recent ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) and welcomed Pakistan’s proposal to hold investigation through United Nations Military Observer Group for India and Pakistan (UMMOGIP). On Afghanistan, the final communique affirmed support to the people of Afghanistan and appreciated Pakistan’s efforts in hosting a large number of Afghan refugees.
The summit expressed satisfaction on the progress made in establishing new OIC organs including the Independent Permanent Commission of Human Rights (IPCHR) and the OIC Women Development Organization (WDO). Pakistan is already a signatory to the Statute of WDO. At the same time, the foreign minister also held a number of bilateral meetings with foreign ministers of Iran, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and U.A.E. She exchanged views on regional and international developments and on the issues of interest to Muslim Ummah.
