The 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) pledged on Sunday to help achieve peace in Afghanistan and said its future leaders must be careful not to use the country as a backyard for international terrorism.
The organization urged “future Afghan leadership” and the international community to work together to ensure that Afghanistan is never again used as a platform or safe haven for “terrorists”.
“Terrorist organizations must not have a foothold (in Afghanistan),” said a latest communiqué, issued after the Saudi Arabia-based organization held a special meeting called by Riyadh to discuss the situation in the war-torn country to discuss.
The body’s appeals and decisions are mostly symbolic, but it shows mistrust of the Taliban who took over Kabul last week and how some Muslim countries are concerned about the new reality in Afghanistan.
The statement called on Afghan parties to resolve their differences “peacefully”.
