The 12th two-day summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has opened in Cairo on Wednesday, February 6, Tengrinews.kz reports. The summit is attended by representatives and heads of 57 countries. The Kazakhstan delegation is led by Foreign Minister Yerlan Idrissov.

The meeting will cover unrest in Mali and Syria, the current situations in Afghanistan, Sudan and Yemen and other OIC countries entangled in internal conflicts. One of the topics on the agenda is islamophobia and ways of tackling it. The delegates will review the idea of stepping up the OIC's cooperation with the UN initiative Alliance of Civilizations.

Kazakhstan Foreign Minister Idrissov will deliver a speech and hold several bilateral meetings with his colleagues and the Organization’s Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu.

The previous OIC summit was held in Senegal in 2008. The meeting in Cairo was initially scheduled for the first half of 2011, but was postponed because of political tensions in Egypt. On November 15, 2012 Kazakhstan passed the OIC chairmanship to Djibouti in the meeting of the OIC Foreign Ministers Council.
