font size    

The 34th session of the Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers (ICFM) will kick off here on Tuesday to discuss a host of issues facing the Islamic nations.

Briefing newsmen here Monday, Pakistani Foreign Office Spokesperson Tasneem Aslam said that the foreign ministers would consider resolutions on a whole range of political, economic, social and cultural matters concerning the Muslim world.

For the first time in the history of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), she said, an interactive ministerial session will be held on the opening day of the conference.

Its theme would be "countering discrimination and intolerance against Muslims and defamation of Islam". The brain storming session would provide guidance to the OIC to engage constructively in the ongoing multilateral discourse on the need for dialogue among civilizations.

Aslam said that besides a number of resolutions, the conference would issue a final communique and Islamabad declaration.

She said that a number of important meetings would also be held on the sidelines of the conference including the OIC contact on Jammu and Kashmir on the ministerial level.

The spokesperson said that Pakistan assumed the chairmanship of the ICFM at a critical time for the Muslim nations.

In answering a question, Aslam said that the ICFM would also discuss proposals about reorganization of the OIC.

The resolutions of the OIC though non-binding would convey a strong a unanimous message from the Muslim world, she said.
