The Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah’s office on Wednesday said Afghanistan is ready for the next Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) meeting that will be held in Saudi Arabia to discuss Afghanistan’s war.
The CEO’s office also said that focus will be paid to the issue that the war should not be fought under the name of Islam.
The CEO’s deputy spokesman Jawed Faisal said all preparations have been made for the conference where religious scholars are expected to issue a fatwa against the ongoing war.
“Saudi Arabia’s stance on Afghanistan’s war is important and for us, the view of religious scholars at the conference on Afghanistan’s war is important,” he said.
Meanwhile, Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman Shekib Mustaghni said on Wednesday at a press conference that the conference was of extreme importance to Afghanistan but that no date had yet been set.
“The conference will raise the issue of outlawing the war in Afghanistan. We are working on the exact time of the session,” Mustaghni said.
“A fatwa from religious scholars at the session is highly important. Afghanistan should attend the conference with sufficient documents and evidence,” said Mohammad Abduh, an MP.
