On Friday, India rejected a Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) resolution commenting on Jammu and Kashmir as “completely unacceptable” and asked the association of 56 Islamic states to “refrain from interfering in the internal affairs of India”.

The Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement, “We have seen the OIC Resolution commenting on the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. It is completely unacceptable. We dismiss it with the contempt it deserves. We advise the OIC to refrain from interfering in the internal affairs of India.”

On Thursday, the Secretary General Iyad Ameen Madani of OIC made a special reference on Jammu and Kashmir in his opening statement at the 42nd session of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) in Kuwait. He stressed on the need for a peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute and added that final disposition of the issue should be evolved through a sustainable dialogue in accordance with the aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

Later, the meeting of the OIC Contact Group on Jammu and Kashmir was chaired by Special Envoy of the OIC Secretary General on Jammu and Kashmir, Ambassador Abdur Rehman Abdullah Alim.

The meeting was attended by Sartaj Aziz, adviser to the Prime Minister of Pakistan on national security and foreign affairs; Elmar Mamadyarov, foreign minister of Azerbaijan; Ambassador Muhammad Ahmed Tayyab of Saudi Arabia, the Ambassador of Turkey and Ambassador Dr. Oumarou Amadou Sonrhai of Niger among others. Sardar Muhammad Yaqoob Khan, president of Pakistani Jammu and Kashmir and Kashmiri leader Ghulam Muhammad Safi also attended the meeting, according to Kashmir Media Service.
