ANNEX


Message dated 17 January 1986 from the Secretary-General of the
Organization of the Islamic Conference regarding the recent acts
of Israeli aggression on the site of Al-Aqsa Mosque


I have the honour to inform you that the Sixteenth Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers, held at Fez, Kingdom of Morocco, from 6 to 10 January 1986, expressed deep concern over the illegal entry into the Al-Aqsa Mosque by some members of the Israeli Knesset under the protection of Israeli police. This was a provocative act which aroused the indignation of Muslims all over the world. The Sixteenth Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers adopted a unanimous resolution on this issue and directed me to convey the contents of the resolution to you immediately.

I trust that the international community will take the necessary measures to ensure that the holy places of Islam under occupation by Israel are not desecrated. The text of the resolution is reproduced below:

(Signed) S. S. PIRZADA
Secretary-General of the
Organization of the Islamic Conference
