The situation in Palestine as well as in the Middle East at large continues to be a serious challenge for the Islamic Ummah and requires a unified stand of the OIC member states on international arena, Azerbaijani FM Elmar Mammadyarov said at the Annual Coordination meeting of the Foreign Ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Member States, held in New York.
According to him, Azerbaijan is deeply concerned over the escalating violence in Iraq that claims so many innocent lives and endangers not only regional but international security.
As a state which has been affected by terrorism in several ways, Azerbaijan believes that there is a vital necessity to further enhance our cooperation on combating international terrorism. Azerbaijan condemns terrorism in all its forms.
Azerbaijan reiterates its sincere gratitude to the Islamic Ummah, OIC member states and OIC Secretariat for their firm position to support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan and their condemnation of the Armenian aggression, he added.
