The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) also expressed its position. The Cooperation Council of Turkic Speaking States, 57 OIC member-states, Iran, Saudi Arabia supported us. However, the OSCE Minsk Group must voice a concrete position on the act of Armenia’s military aggression. Unfortunately, we again receive standard answers."
