The 46th Session of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers is taking place in Abu Dhabi on 1-2 March 2019. India has been invited to the inaugural plenary.
India is a country with unresolved disputes with Pakistan, a founding member of OIC. India is also responsible for horrendous human rights violations of the people of Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir. India has consistently rejected OIC resolutions on the Jammu & Kashmir dispute, adopted at the OIC Foreign Ministers and Summit levels. In rejecting OIC resolutions on Jammu & Kashmir India had said that “India dismisses it with the contempt it deserves.”
Pakistan believes that with such a record India has no legal or moral grounds to be present at the meeting.
Pakistan’s strong objections in this regard have been clearly communicated.
The Foreign Minister of Pakistan will not participate in the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers.
