OIC Welcomes Including its Member States in the International Quartet Meeting in New York

Date: 10/09/2015

The Secretary General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Mr. Iyad Amin Madani, welcomed the invitations addressed to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Arab Republic of Egypt to attend the meeting of the International Quartet due to be held on the 30th of the current month of September on the margin of the UN General Assembly’s annual meeting in New York. He viewed that step as important and in line with the OIC stands which call for the invigoration of the Quartet’s role and the reshaping of its structure and work processes in such a way as to bolster efforts in favor of achieving peace based on the Two-State solution.

The Secretary General expressed the hope that this would constitute a fresh opportunity to enhance the positive and active involvement of the international community players and to step up efforts aimed at achieving peace, security and stability in the region, through handling the peace alternative from a more realistic and more diligent perspective.

Mr. Madani laid stress on the urgent need for a clear plan and vision on the part of the international Quartet for a just and comprehensive solution to the Israeli-Palestinian crisis. He called on all parties to be more diligent in their endeavors to put an end to the continued Israeli aggressions in Al-Quds, the West Bank and Gaza and to stop the expansion of settlements in the Palestinian territories and the illegal practices in the Al-Aqsa Mosque and its surroundings as well as the settler onslaughts against the defenseless citizens. In this respect, he invoked the need for the Quartet to act and set a time-limit for a conclusive end to the Israeli occupation to be reached based on the resolutions of international legitimacy including the UN General Assembly’s resolution of November 29, 2012 recognizing Palestine as a non-Member State.
