 Annan calls on Islamic States to continue cooperation with UN in world’s hotspots

Secretary-General Kofi Annan today called on Islamic countries to continue their cooperation with the United Nations in calming crisis flashpoints particularly between Israel and the Palestinians, in Iraq, and in Sudan’s strife-torn Darfur region.

“Over the years, and especially the past decade, the United Nations and the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) have worked to promote tolerance, equality, development and the peaceful resolution of conflict,” he said in a message to a meeting in Rabat on cooperation between the two bodies, delivered by Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights Mehr Khan Williams.

“This gathering is therefore a timely occasion to review our existing cooperation.”

Referring to the Middle East, Mr. Annan repeated his call all parties to avoid steps which further aggravate the situation and to act in strict accordance with international humanitarian law. “At this difficult juncture, the international community, including the OIC, must guide the two sides away from violence and conflict and towards negotiations and compromise,” he said.

On Iraq, he voiced hope that the OIC would continue to work with the UN and other parties to ensure that the new inclusive and representative Government there is fully empowered to address the grave challenges confronting it.

“In Sudan, we must now do everything within our power to ensure that the Darfur Peace Agreement is fully implemented. At the same time, we must continue to deliver the humanitarian assistance that is a lifeline for so many people in that region,” he said.

“The United Nations needs partners such as the OIC and other international and regional organizations whose experience and knowledge complement the reach and legitimacy of the UN system. Your support is crucial to our long term success.”
