  • Description

    ISLAMIC FOREIGN MINISTERS ENDED THEIR THREE-DAY CONFERENCE IN JEDDAH ON THURSDAY (MARCH 26TH) WITH A FURTHER CONDEMNATION OF ISRAEL FOR REFUSING TO WITHDRAW ITS FORCES FROM ARAB TERRITORIES.

    TO STRENGTHEN ISLAMIC UNITY -- AND GIVE ADDED SUPPORT TO THE RIGHTS OF THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE IN THEIR STRUGGLE AGAINST ISRAEL -- THE MAJORITY OF THE 22 FOREIGN MINISTERS AND REPRESENTATIVES SUPPORTED PROPOSALS TO ESTABLISH A PERMANENT CONFERENCE SECRETARIAT.

    EARLIER DISAGREEMENT OVER A BASE FOR THE GENERAL SECRETARIAT HAD FORCED AN EXTENSION TO THE CONFERENCE.

    THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC'S CALL FOR THE SECRETARIAT'S HEADQUARTERS TO BE ESTABLISHED IN CAIRO WAS OPPOSED BY SAUDI ARABI AND MOROCCO. FINALLY, THE MAJORITY OF DELEGATES DECIDED THE HEADQUARTERS SHOULD BE IN SAUDI ARABIA -- UNTIL JERUSALEM HAS BEEN "LIBERATED".

    CONFERENCE PRESIDENT OMAR SQAF ADDED IN HIS FINAL COMMUNIQUE THAT THE CONFERENCE DELEGATES HAD DECIDED TO MEET ANNUALLY.
