Pak Foreign Minister Skips OIC Meet Due to Sushma’s Presence

Pak Foreign Minister Skips OIC Meet Due to Sushma’s Presence

Islamabad: Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that he will not attend the meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in the UAE due to his Indian counterpart  Sushma Swaraj’s presence at the event.

Qureshi made the announcement in a joint session of Parliament which continued on Friday amid tensions between India and Pakistan, media reports from the neighboring country stated.

“I have decided not to attend OIC Council of Foreign Ministers meeting in Abu Dhabi,” the Minister said.
Pakistan will send a lower-level delegation to the OIC event.

The delegation will “staunchly” oppose any move to grant observer status to India at the body, reports added.

For the first time, India has been invited to attend the Foreign Ministers’ conclave in Abu Dhabi on March 1-2.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will be the “guest of honour”.

Continuing his protest against the OIC’s decision to invite Sushma Swaraj to attend the meeting, Qureshi said he will skip the session due to the inter-governmental organisation’s failure to rescind the invitation to his Indian counterpart.
