President Asif Ali Zardari has commended the initiative of Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz to hold an emergency OIC summit on the 27th of Ramazan for discussing issues of concern to the Muslim Ummah.
“We hope the emergency summit will not only identify most critical issues facing the Ummah, but also suggest practical ways to address them,” he said in an interview to Okaz, a major Saudi newspaper.
The President said that the problems facing the Ummah are complex and varied and it calls for a combined effort of all Muslim countries to join hands in finding a solution.
He said that the Pakistani government is working to strengthen the Pak-Saudi relations in all areas.
