ISTANBUL (Ma'an) -- The 13th Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit in Istanbul ended Friday, with leaders of Muslim countries adopting a joint resolution on Palestine, the action plan for the organization in 2016-2025, and the “Istanbul Declaration.”

The two-day summit highlighted the Palestinian cause as among one of the main issues facing the Muslim world, which also included global terrorism and the migration crisis.

Palestinians’ rights to self determination, the right of return for Palestinian refugees abroad, and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital were reaffirmed at the summit.

Kuwait News Agency reported that the resolution also called for holding an international peace conference to set methods of providing international security to Palestinians and ending the illegal Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territory including East Jerusalem.

The conference applauded Indonesia for holding the OIC summit on Palestine in March and commended Senegal for its continued action in favor of the Palestinian cause.

King Muhammad VI of Morocco and King Abdullah II of Jordan were also commended for defending Islamic and Christian religious sites in Israeli-occupied East Jerusalem.
