OIC Appeals to Washington to Back down from Closing PLO Office

Islamic Cooperation Organization (OIC) called here today, on the United
States administration to reconsider a decision to close the Palestinian
Liberation Organization (PLO) office, in Washington, stressing that this
decision does not serve the chances of achieving peace and, instead,
contradicts the responsibilities of the United States of America, as a

United States has sponsored the peace negotiations between the
Palestinians and the Israelis and has played a pivotal role, in
advancing the peace process, OIC statement stressed, adding that the
United States is, eagerly, expected to review its recent positions,
which will only help to move away from the desired peace.

The Organization reiterated support for PLO, the legitimate and sole
representative of the Palestinian people, in their efforts to find a
just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian question and to
restore the rights of the Palestinian people, by all means, provided by
international legitimacy and, in accordance with the purposes and
resolutions of the United Nations Charter, the statement concluded.
