Saifuddin to participate in OIC’s emergency meeting over Christchurch terror attack


PUTRAJAYA: Foreign Affairs Minister Saifuddin Abdullah would be attending Organisation of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) open-ended executive committee’s emergency meeting for foreign ministers in Istanbul, Turkey that would also discuss the terror attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Wisma Putra confirmed that Saifuddin would be stating Malaysia’s stance on the attack that claimed 50 victims.

“The final statement would be released at the end of the session as a document based on the meeting,” said the ministry in a statement, reported Malay daily Berita Harian.

“Malaysia’s involvement in this meeting proves that Malaysia is supportive of OIC in championing the rights of Muslims worldwide.

It will also relay Malaysia’s support and concerns to the terror attack victims, families and New Zealanders,” it said in a statement today.

The terror attack on two mosques in Christchurch last week claimed the lives of 50 people, including three Malaysians. Initially only two Malaysians were confirmed dead.
