OIC urges for recognition of Palestine as independent state




(MENAFN) The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has called on Britain and other countries to fully recognize Palestine as an independent state.

The statement was issued to mark the OIC's disapproval at the British government's intention to organize a celebration to mark Thursday's centenary of the Balfour Declaration, which laid the foundations for the state of Israel on Palestinian territory.

The OIC condemned the anniversary's commemoration describing the declaration as "a heinous act", and stating that the declaration has deprived Palestinians of their native land, and to celebrate that fact could only aggravate the already-tense situation in the occupied territories.
