Azerbaijan, Baku, October 21/Trend, R.Hafizoglu/
Secretary General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu is backing Saudi Arabia's refusal to take a seat on the UN Security Council, a message from the organisation on Monday said.
According to the information, Saudi Arabia's refusal to take a seat on the UN Security Council must contribute to the change of double standard policy of the UN Security Council.
Saudi Arabia became a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the first time in its history, but refused taking a seat on the organisation 'due to double standard policy and ineffectiveness of the Security Council in solving the key international problems', a statement of Saudi Arabia's Foreign Ministry said.
Turkish President Abdullah Gul also supported Saudi Arabia's refusal to take a seat on the UN Security Council saying the organization loses credibility in people's mind. According to the Turkish president, Saudi Arabia's decision is right and the permanent members of the UN Security Council ought to consider it.
