Riyadh welcomes "Kuwait Declaration" issued by OIC ministerial meeting


(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The Saudi cabinet on Monday welcomed the "Kuwait Declaration" issued by the 42nd Meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Foreign Ministers Council.

Last week, Kuwait hosted the OIC ministerial meeting, entitled "Joint Vision to Strengthen Tolerance and Reject Terrorism." The Declaration focused on key topics of the Muslim World, comprising a multitude of resolutions for enhancing joint Islamic work, and supporting ongoing efforts to reform the OIC.

Chaired by King Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, today's cabinet meeting renewed the Kingdom's call to the international community to take necessary measures likely to stop the "hazardous Israeli violations in the Palestinian occupied territories.

It urged intervention to halt attempts seeking to Judaize Jerusalem and divide Al-Aqsa Mosque. It called for curbing arrests against Palestinians and moving some Israeli government offices to Jerusalem.

Locally, the cabinet condemned the "terrorist" attack that targeted Al-Anoud Mosque in Dammam, west of the Kingdom last Friday.

A suicide bomber detonated an explosive belt near the gate of Al-Anoud Mosque in western city of Dammam, killing himself and three others. Four more were injured.

The cabinet considered this "a sinful attack by a deviating and reneging religion group which has adopted violence and killing as an approach, sought for corruption on the earth, undermined security and stability and distorted the image of Islam, commending the security authorities for thwarting the attempt of executing the crime."
