In his speech, Al Zaabi thanked the Permanent Observing Committee of the OIC at the UN for its valuable work and significant efforts to coordinate the activities of the organisation’s member countries, and expressed his gratitude to Ahsan for his openness and cooperation during his presidency. He also thanked the OIC’s coordinators for supporting the organisation’s principles.
Al Zaabi stressed that the UAE, as the hosting country of this year’s 46th session of the OIC Ministers of Foreign Affairs Council, is always open to cooperation and aims to facilitate the work of the OIC and support its stances while noting that coordination and joint action are crucial to the success of the OIC’s work in Geneva.
