Britain and Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) signed a cooperation agreement on Thursday.

British Foreign & Common Wealth Office stated that British Deputy Foreign Secretary Sayeeda Warsi and OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu signed a cooperation agreement covering security, peace, human rights, science and technology, humanitarian assistance and culture areas.

The agreement will help Britain and OIC work closer.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Ihsanoglu said that the agreement would give the opportunity to boost the dialogue and extend the cooperation between OIC and Britain.

Recent incidents in our region strengthened our determination to work closer on important international political, humanitarian and social matters, he said.

Meanwhile, Warsi said that they would have the chance to work together on important issues such as human rights and freedoms, freedom of belief and respect towards different beliefs.

Britain, last year, appointed a special representative to Jeddah-based OIC.
