48th OIC-CFM


After holding a successful extraordinary meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Council of Foreign Ministers (CFMs) in Islamabad last year, now Pakistan is going to host the upcoming 48th session of the OIC-CFMs on 22nd to 24th March in Islamabad. The main objective of this moot is to promote unity among Muslims on this occasion and address other issues, particularly Islamophobia and hate speech. The proposed theme of the 48th Session, “Partnering for Unity, Justice, and Development” fully encapsulates these priorities. Under this theme, Pakistan will seek to build ‘partnerships’ across the Islamic world, and build bridges of cooperation to address the myriad of challenges confronting the Ummah.  Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said, at the platform of the upcoming 48th meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Islamabad, Pakistan would act as a bridge to promote unity among the Muslim countries and contribute towards finding a way together on common issues facing the Islamic world. Apart from this, Pakistan will continue to work with the other OIC Member States, towards harnessing our ‘collective ambition’ into ‘concrete action’, and to take tangible steps to further strengthen bonds of Islamic solidarity and cooperation”. A meeting of the Kashmir Contact Group will also be held on the sidelines of the OIC-CFM meeting, where Pakistan is going to present observational reports on the Kashmir issue. Furthermore, in this meeting, the humanitarian aspect of the situation in Afghanistan where millions were at risk of disease and hunger will also be part of the discussion. Last but not the least, the meeting would also review the implementation of the decisions of the previous 47th meeting. undoubtedly, this is a great opportunity for Pakistan to represent the voice of Muslim Ummah and the foremost challenges to Muslim society. The upcoming OIC-CFM meeting is a reflection of the shared aspirations of “Muslim Ummah” to ensure peace and progress in this world.
