TEHRAN, Apr. 15 (MNA) – In protest to 4 anti-Iranian articles in the final statement of the 13th summit of OIC in Istanbul, President Rouhani, FM Zarif and accompanying delegation did not attend the closing meeting.
To voice their protest to anti-Iranian articles in the final statement of the 13th summit of OIC in Istanbul, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, and the rest of the Iranian delegation did not share the table at the closing meeting of the summit.
In contrast to President Rouhani’s call of unity, Turkey and Saudi Arabia tried to frame Iran as a supporter of terrorism.
In response to these moves, Foreign Minister Zarif, On Wednesday, described Saudi Arabia’s move to include statements against Tehran and Hezbollah as “destructive,” and reminded the Saudis of the destiny of Saddam’s regime who was trying to use the OIC mechanism in favor of his political interests against Iran during the war of 1980-88.
Saudis who denied Iranian diplomats visas to attend expert-level meeting of the organization in February in the Saudi port city of Jaddah, prepared a draft against Iran and Hezbollah and passed it in Istanbul.
