ISLAMABAD: The Kashmir dispute has not been included in the agenda of the two-day meeting of foreign ministers of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) being held in Niger’s capital Niamey from Friday.
The OIC statements, both in English and Arabic, made no specific mention of Kashmir in the agenda announced in Riyadh.
OIC Secretary General Dr Yousef Al-Othaimeen was quoted in the official statement as having said that the meeting would discuss the Palestinian cause, the fight against violence, extremism and terrorism, Islamophobia and defamation of religion, the situation of Muslim minorities and communities in non-member states, fundraising for the Rohingya case at the International Court of Justice, as well as the promotion of dialogue among civilisations, cultures and religions, and other emerging matters.
The agenda of the Niamey meeting also includes discussion on the political, humanitarian, economic, social and cultural and other issues related to science and technology, the media and the progress made in the implementation of the “OIC-2025: Plan of Action” document. It would, moreover, feature a brainstorming session on “Security and Humanitarian Challenges Confronting African Sahel States Members of the OIC”.

Pakistan has since the annexation of occupied Kashmir by India been demanding a special meeting of the OIC foreign ministers on the dispute. The meeting has not been convened so far because the Saudis, who wield a virtual veto in the 57-member bloc of Muslim countries, has not supported Islamabad’s move.
The latest omission of Kashmir from the agenda of the regular foreign ministers’ meeting comes at a time when ties between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia/UAE remain strained over what Pakistani diplomats say are “unfulfilled expectations”.
A diplomatic source separately said that this time OIC Contact Group on Kashmir would not meet either. The hosts declined a Pakistani request for a meeting on the pretext of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi left Islamabad on Wednesday for participating in the OIC meeting.
The Foreign Office said Mr Qureshi would highlight the aggravating human rights situation in occupied Kashmir after last year’s annexation and introduction of measures to change the demographic structure of the Muslim-majority and disputed region.
Iftikhar A. Khan adds: The foreign minister, meanwhile, wrote a letter to the president of the United Nations Security Council and the secretary general, urging the Security Council to exercise its direct responsibility to prevent India from perpetrating its criminal colonial project to change the demographic structure of the disputed territory.
The letter also calls for securing the implementation of the UN resolutions which recognise Kashmiris’ legitimate right to self-determination through a free and impartial plebiscite under the UN auspices.

How beautifully you explained losses in Laddakh. Appreciated. Rest about speaking of faith into OIC statements; this thread is dedicated to what India tried but today's updates speaks otherwise.

At next years OIC meeting, the full extent of what has been going on in Kashmir needs to be explained to every visiting foreign minister so they and their governments can not say they did not know.

If the OIC countries want to they collectively have the power to put enough pressure on India to stop how it is oppressing minorities, especially Muslims. If they fail to do, it is only for lack of will not capability.

Can we just annex Saudi Arabia already. They have an incompetent military. We can even tactical nuke them as we please, they are really in no position to retaliate. We can use Iranian help too.
Dude do you think that the real world works like pdf:D

OIC is more like an Arab league.

Better to initiate a new forum which was proposed earlier with the help of Turkey and Malaysia.

It was a diplomatic blunder by IK led government by not attending the Malaysian summit. We should had done that to keep pressure on the Saudis. Its time to revive that.
you are assuming Malaysian leaders minus Mahathir Mohammed are interested in this

Welcome back from the ban.
Policies dont change overnight with the removal of one person.
thanks for the welcome :-)

Mahathir always like to punch above his class at least in political rhetoric. He is a nice competent leader. He lacks the imagination and resources to make true his dreams. Push comes to shove - Mahathir always backs away from a serious fight.

Malaysia is a small country of 30 million - 60% Muslim. They have limited resources. Non-Muslims are not going to pay for any of his grandiose schemes as they relate to Islam. They lack the petro clout of Saudi Arabia. They will play second fiddle to larger countries in the region whether it be Vietnam, Thailand or Indonesia.

Other Malaysian leaders are more parochial or inward looking. It is that simple
