Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu has urged member-countries to intensify efforts in resolving Islamophobia, the organization said today.

"It is necessary to resolve the problem with Islamophobia as it is undergoing a new phase, when it is used in Europe for political gains," he said.

He added that some European politicians promote hatred toward foreigners and Islam rather than engage in economic and social problems of the country.
