OPEN-ENDED EXTRAORDINARY MEETING OF THE OIC EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE AT THE LEVEL OF PERMANENT REPRESENTATIVES TO DISCUSS THE ONGOING ISRAELI AGGRESSION AGAINST THE BLESSED AL-AQSA MOSQUE 25 APRIL 2022, JEDDAH, KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA

 

Malaysia condemned in the strongest term the harsh and disrespectful atrocities of the Israeli Occupation Forces against the Palestinians civilians and worshippers at the AlAqsa Mosque. Malaysia further categorised the systematic oppression by the Occupying Power as the crimes of apartheid and it therefore called for a renewed commitment of the international community towards a lasting solution to the IsraelPalestine conflict.

Malaysia further reaffirmed its unwavering support for the Palestinians and their cause for achieving freedom from the illegal Israeli occupation and realizing their aspiration for an independent State of Palestine based on the pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as their Capital.

The OIC Member States spoke in one clear voice in expressing their strong support to the plight of Palestinians; condemning in the strongest term the recent Israeli aggression at Al-Aqsa Mosque especially in the month of Ramadan; stressing on the need to preserve the historical and legal status quo in Al-Aqsa Mosque; calling for an urgent action to put an end to the Israeli violations against the holy sites of Islam; and urging the OIC to ensure the Palestine-Israel conflict remains high on the global agenda.

Malaysia participated in the Open-Ended Extraordinary Meeting of the OIC Executive Committee at the level of Permanent Representative to discuss the ongoing Israeli aggression against the Al-Aqsa Mosque on 25 April 2022, in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The meeting was chaired by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in its capacity as the Chair of OIC Islamic Summit and was attended by the Secretary-General of OIC and other OIC Member States.

The OIC adopted a final communique as an outcome of the meeting. The document among others, reiterates the centrality of the cause of Palestine for the entire Islamic Ummah; calls for effective measures and intensified coordination by the international community to address the conflict; and calls on OIC Member States and the Islamic Groups to work at the international forums in providing international protection for the Palestinian people.
