JEDDAH: The Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Hissein Brahim Taha on Thursday delivered a speech on the occasion of the seventh Annual Coordination Meeting of OIC Institutions (ACMOI), held in Jeddah on 17-18 January.

In his address, Secretary-General Hissein Brahim Taha expressed his satisfaction with the progress achieved by ACMOI since its establishment in 2015, as a mechanism to ensure the effective implementation of OIC resolutions and decisions in the political, social, cultural, Science and Technology, economic, and humanitarian fields.

He also highlighted the priority given by the OIC to the Palestinian cause, which is at the heart of its agenda, and condemned the continuing brutal Israeli aggression against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip; an aggression that has resulted in tens of thousands of casualties and millions of displaced persons, as well as caused huge destruction, damage and human suffering.

He called for collective action and effective steps to be taken by OIC institutions in order to strengthen the resilience of the Palestinians and address the humanitarian consequences they are suffering from, especially in the Gaza Strip.

He also underlined the common challenges facing the Islamic world, such as Islamophobia, food insecurity, technology and education issues as major priorities of the OIC, as stipulated by the multiple CFM resolutions.

The Secretary-General also lauded the coordination efforts between the different OIC institutions, which have eased the implementation of OIC resolutions on different matters of common interest to the Islamic world.

He congratulated the OIC family on the launch of 3 new institutions, namely the Islamic Forum of Halal Accreditation Bodies, the OIC Labour Centre, and King Faisal University in Chad, which will strengthen OIC capacity and cooperation in the fields of halal products development, labor, and education.
