Saudi Arabia Successfully Organizes the Historic Makkah Summit and Unites Muslim leaders Against Iran and its Terrorism Activities

‘Criminal’ Iran condemned at Makkah summit

On the eve of 15th anniversary of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the leaders of the Islamic world have gathered for the 14th Islamic Summit which takes place in Mecca as a part of a week-long trio of summits. Earlier today, the Gulf Arab Summit was headed by King Salman bin Abdulaziz with a firm call to action against Iran’s involvement in sabotaging the internal peace and stability of different Arab countries.

More than 50 leaders from the OIC member countries partook in the high-level meet up in Mecca in the later hours of Friday. Ahead of the event, King Salman said that, “we will confront aggressive threats and acts of sabotage so that they don’t stop us from developing our countries and societies”, replying to the threats from Iran and its sponsored terrorist groups.

King Salman promised that the Makkah Summits will bring ‘stability’ and ‘peace’. Palestinian oppression, Islamophobia, the condition of Muslims around the globe and extremism and terrorism faced by the Muslim world remained the main talking point of the Islamic Summit as Saudi Monarch convened the event.

Talking about the longstanding Palestinian crisis, King  Salman stressed OIC’s stance, rejecting measures that would impact the status of Jerusalem.

“The Palestinian issue is the essential priority of the work of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which is the focus of our concern so that the brotherly Palestinian people will receive all their legitimate rights guaranteed by international resolutions and the Arab peace initiative”, he reiterated.

The Custodian of the two Holy Mosques also shed light on the recent Iran-backed terrorist attacks saying that these acts ‘not only target the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the UAE, but also the maritime traffic, the maritime movement, and the oil supply globally.’ The Emir of Kuwait also condemned the attacks while adding that a cautious approach is needed to resolve the challenges faced by the region in times of rising tensions.

OIC Secretary-General, Dr. Yousef bin Ahmad Al-Othaimeen also denounced the assaults by Iran-sponsored Houthi militias. Turkish representative – Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu – said that Turkey has done the best it can to solve the Syrian crisis. However, the absence of President Tayyip Erdogan speaks volumes about the country’s seriousness in combating issues engulfing the Muslim world.

The Presidents of Tunisia and Nigeria – Beji Caid Essebsi and  Muhammadu Buhari – touched on the subjects of extremism and terrorism while the Bangladeshi PM Haseena Wajid said that ‘the Muslim World is being misjudged because of terrorism’. King Abdullah of Jordan insisted on a comprehensive solution that guarantees the Palestinians’ rights as per the 1967 borders. Senegal’s representative expressed similar views over the matter of Palestine.

Egyptian President, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi exposed Iran meddling politics to disrupt global peace, saying that ‘we condemn the Houthi militias’ attempt to target Saudi security’. Lebanon’s Hezbollah leader warned against any armed conflict in the region, saying that it would cause the Middle East to erupt. Bahraini King Hamad also stressed the importance of the sovereignty of different countries. He said that ‘we stress on the policy of not interfering with other countries’ internal affairs’.

Pakistani PM, Imran Khan rejected the world’s differential behavior towards Muslims, saying that ‘the international community must respect the feelings of more than a billion Muslims. Western countries must differentiate between moderate Muslims and extremists’.

The 14th edition of Islamic Summit ended with the adoption of final communiqué which stressed on all the major topics of discussion including Palestine issue, Islamophobia, extremism from the likes of Iran and its proxies as well as other issues facing the Muslim world.
