Open-Ended Extraordinary Meeting of OIC Executive Committee at Level of Foreign Ministers Concluded 2

The Executive Committee called upon the American administration to abide by the internationally agreed-on legal terms of reference for a just, lasting and comprehensive peace.

The Executive Committee reaffirmed its rejection of any plan, deal, or initiative submitted by any party whatsoever, which is inconsistent with the legitimate and inalienable rights of the Palestinian people as enshrined in agreed international legitimacy resolutions, or not in conformity with internationally recognized terms of reference of the Middle East peace process, foremost of which is international law, UN resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative.

The Executive Committee held Israel, the illegitimate occupying power, responsible for the deterioration of the situation on the ground because of its denial of relevant agreements, its defiance of international legitimacy and the continuation of the policies of colonization, annexation, settlement expansion, discrimination and ethnic cleansing, which have been perpetrated against the Palestinian people in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem.

The Executive Committee warned Israel, the illegal occupation power, against taking any step or taking any measures to consolidate its colonial occupation in the territory of the State of Palestine, including annexation of any part of the occupied State of Palestine, and calls on the international community and international organizations to confront all these measures.

The Executive Committee condemned and rejected any positions issued by any party that support the protraction of the occupation and its expansionist colonial settlement design at the expense of the legitimate national rights of the Palestinian people, at the forefront of which is the right to self-determination.

The Executive Committee affirmed full support for the Palestinian people and its sole and legitimate representative, the Palestine Liberation Organization headed by President Mahmoud Abbas, while confronting any conspiracy targeting the Palestinian people's inalienable legitimate rights, and in this regard, calls upon Member States to support all Palestinian legal, political and diplomatic efforts in all international fora.
