OIC discusses terrorism

2011-09-11 22:53
Jeddah - The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation on Sunday called on the international community to take a "multi-dimensional" approach to fighting terrorism.

The 57-nation organisation said in a statement on the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks: "It is our firm belief that combating terrorism requires a multi-dimensional approach and not only the use of military means to guarantee sustainable peace."

It added that the OIC was committed to "combating terrorism" and called for global cultural and religious reconciliation talks to "debunk the myth of a clash of civilisations elevated by the tragic events of 9/11."

The Jeddah-based OIC also called on the international community to "act in the spirit of moderation and dialogue to eliminate all forms of hatred, intolerance and discrimination."
