The 33rd session of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the countries, integrated in the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC), opened in the Azerbaijani capital. Its participants are discussing problems of regional security, the pooling of efforts of the Muslim countries in the war on global terrorism, as well as the boosting of their participation in the world processes. Representatives of 51 Islamic countries gathered in the Gyulistan Palace, in the central part of Baku, where the most important political forums, including on an international level, are usually held. Not all the delegations are led by foreign ministers, only those of 33 countries. According to the information of diplomatic sources in Baku, some delegations, specifically the delegation of Somalia, managed to come to Baku thanks to the financial assistance of the governments of Azerbaijan and Turkey. Participants in the session will discuss some 100 items on the agenda, which deal with the key problems facing the Muslim world. These include ways of the settlement of regional problems, the demographic development and ways to ensure human rights, the reduction of the poverty rate in the Islamic countries, as well as their participation in global energy projects. The nuclear problem of Iran and the expansion of the U.N. Security Council will be in the focus of a special attention of the session. OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu told journalists on Sunday, that “the Muslim community, which makes one fifth of the world community, should be represented in the U.N. Security Council.” In his opinion, “the U.N. Security Council should protect the rights of all nations of the world, including those living in the Islamic countries.” Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mamedyarov said that their country regarded the holding in Baku of the session of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers “as evidence of the recognition of Azerbaijan as one of the regional leaders.” Azerbaijani President Ilkham Aliyev is expected to address the session. The Baku Declaration will be adopted on the results of the session, which will last until June 21. OIC rallies 57 countries. Azerbaijan joined it in 1991.
