Qatar Affirms Commitment to Islamic Solidarity at 15th Islamic Summit Conference

Banjul, The Gulf Observer: The State of Qatar actively participated in the 15th Islamic Summit Conference convened in Banjul, the capital of The Gambia, on Saturday, marking a significant diplomatic engagement within the Islamic community.

Representing Qatar at the prestigious gathering was His Excellency Sultan bin Saad Al Muraikhi, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs. In Qatar’s statement delivered before the esteemed assembly, His Excellency reiterated the nation’s unwavering commitment to fostering unity and solidarity among the member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and their populace.

Against the backdrop of unprecedented global challenges, the statement underscored the urgency of the current meeting. It emphasized the multifaceted obstacles confronting OIC member states, including ongoing occupations, armed conflicts, and a surge in hostility towards Islam and Muslims.

In a poignant declaration, the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs lamented Israel’s persistent defiance of international norms, particularly its disregard for the ruling issued by the International Court of Justice in January. The ruling, which mandated the implementation of six provisional measures to prevent genocide in the Gaza Strip, remains unheeded by Israel, thus exacerbating the plight of Palestinians.

His Excellency urged the international community to shoulder its responsibilities by swiftly intervening to quell the escalation of hostilities perpetuated by the Israeli military against Palestinians. He stressed the imperative of compelling the Israeli occupation to abide by established international law and humanitarian principles.

The participation of Qatar in the 15th Islamic Summit Conference underscores its unwavering dedication to advancing Islamic solidarity and advocating for justice and peace in the face of prevailing global challenges.
