Commemoration of OIC 50th Anniversary: Opportunity to Highlight Centrality of Morocco in Strengthening Joint Islamic Action

The commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is an opportunity to highlight the centrality of the Kingdom in strengthening joint Islamic action by its diversified contribution and active participation in the activities of the organization.

This important event is also an opportunity to shed light on the pioneering role of HM King Mohammed VI, Chairman of the Al Quds Committee, as well as his leadership in the field of diplomatic action with active countries and international organizations with a view to defending the just causes of the Palestinian people, and the action on the ground in Al-Quds through the projects sponsored by the Al-Quds Agency in the areas of urbanization, education, health, employment and preservation of the urban and historic heritage of the holy city.

The celebration of this anniversary is a call to review the Islamic common action during this period, evaluate achievements, anticipate future prospects and contribute together to empowering the Organization to play an influential and active role on the international scene, in accordance with the insightful vision by HM King Mohammed VI during the previous Islamic Summits.

The Kingdom of Morocco commemorates the 50th anniversary of the OIC inception under the theme "Morocco: Modernization and Action". On this occasion, a large ceremony will be organized on December 12 at the headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan expatriates, said a statement by the same ministry.

The celebration will take place in the presence of ministers and representatives of the troika of the Islamic Summit (Turkey, Saudi Arabia and The Gambia), the ministerial troika (Bangladesh, United Arab Emirates and Niger), the OIC Secretary General, as well as several imminent figures from the Islamic world, and representatives of several Islamic countries and organizations and members of the diplomatic corps accredited to Morocco.
