Jeddah, Ramadan 10, 1438, Jun 5, 2017, SPA -- The General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) stated that it has been following closely the current developments in the Gulf region, namely the severance of diplomatic relations with Qatar by many OIC Member States following information and evidence of hostile acts emanating from Qatar.
The OIC General Secretariat called upon the State of Qatar to honor its previous commitments and agreements signed within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), particularly with regard to ceasing support for terrorist groups and their activities and ending media incitement.
The General Secretariat underscored the need for all Member States, including Qatar, to adhere to the principles of the OIC Charter, which calls for adhering to the policy of good neighborliness, respect for the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Member States, and non-interference in their domestic affairs.
