The conference was convened with the theme of “Partnering for Justice, Unity, and Development,” and it reiterated solidarity with Somalia, Sudan, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Afghanistan, Union of Comoros, Djibouti, and Herzegovina, the People of Jammu and Kashmir, Bosnia, and the Turkish Cypriots.
Jammu and Kashmir were also focused upon in the conference of the OIC member states, who renewed their unwavering solidarity with the oppressed people of Jammu and Kashmir and extended full support for their inalienable human rights.
The OIC moot called for the return of Afghanistan’s frozen national assets, as early access to its monetary resources is critical in stopping an economic meltdown and exacerbating the humanitarian situation.

The huddle underlined the importance of respect for the human rights of all Afghans – including those belonging to religious, ethnic, and cultural minorities.
