OIC to assign special representative to Afghanistan

 

The head of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) said on Tuesday that his organization would continue to extend humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, moreover, it would support the joint efforts aiming at a political solution in this country.

Speaking at the International Kabul Conference in Afghanistan, OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu said the situation in Afghanistan was one of the most important issues on the agenda of OIC.

Noting that regional cooperation and international partnership should be improved in order to strengthen the Afghan leadership, Ihsanoglu said a solely military solution would not be sufficient for Afghanistan.

Ihsanoglu said all the relevant parties should display their good intention for the establishment of peace and stability in Afghanistan, adding the instability in the country affected the whole region.

"We will continue to support Afghanistan in a more active way both in terms of humanitarian aid and within the scope of the joint movement aiming at reaching a political solution in the country," Ihsanoglu said.

The OIC head also noted that his organization would assign a special representative to Afghanistan in the upcoming term in order to establish a faster dialogue with this country and to carry out more active studies together with the international community.
