Embarking on the 15th Summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in Vibrant Gambia

The 15th assembly of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) kicked off in Banjul, Gambia. Leaders from the 57 OIC member nations and beyond are expected to participate, as stated in the OIC declaration before the summit. Representing Turkey is Hakan Fidan, their foreign minister.

The summit’s primary goal is to fortify unity in tackling challenges encountered by the Muslim community and to foster cooperation and solidarity among member nations, in line with the OIC’s charter. The gathering will also focus on improving domestic economies, supporting small and medium-sized enterprises, and showcasing Gambian and African culture to the globe.

With the theme “Enhancing unity and solidarity through dialogue for sustainable development,” the summit will discuss global issues such as the current situation in Palestine and the conflict in the Gaza Strip, which has resulted in the deaths of over 34,000 individuals.

Throughout the summit, three crucial documents – a preliminary Palestinian resolution, a draft Banjul statement, and the final draft – will be presented to the Council of Foreign Ministers and then deliberated upon by the summit attendees.
