"The current difficult regional and international circumstances that the world is witnessing, throw its shadows, in particular, on the Islamic nation, more than any time before. In addition to difficult economic conditions, poverty, conflicts and foreign occupation of which many Moslem countries suffer, Islam has been the target of a deliberate defamation campaign, which is hurting Moslems' interests and their legal rights which are guaranteed to them by international laws and norms. In light of this, we are urged to mobilize our will to utilize the political and economic weight of Moslem countries around the world to confront such campaign; deepen the international understanding of Moslem Umma's grievances; defend its just causes and highlight its civilized face. In this respect, we want to emphasize the importance of the completion of the work of the Ad hoc Committee to modify the constitution of the OIC as soon as possible, since it will push the activation of the Islamic efforts, in preparation for ratification at the next summit in Senegal," said Al Jarman.

He added "In the frame of the 62nd session of the GA of the United Nations, the UAE reaffirms the importance of focusing on the following: First, that the United Nations is the largest multi lateral international forum through which we can extend bridges of understanding between the politically, economically and culturally diverse countries of the world, as well as defending the interests of our peoples, and emphasize the importance of upholding the principles and objectives of the Charter and the International laws.

Second, support of the reform and strengthening of the international organization including through the reform of its main bodies: strengthening the role of the General Assembly: expanding the Security Council according to the equitable geographical and cultural distribution: activating the role of the ECOSOC and ensuring sufficient financial resources to the organization to enable it to play its role in confronting the international challenges and discharging its main responsibilities to the maintenance of international peace and security.

Third, working actively and effectively to promote the real face of Islam which features tolerance, kindness and love; making Substantial efforts to achieve more inter-religions and inter- cultures understanding to combat hatred of Islam and expanding bridges of understanding and cooperation between the Moslem world and other countries of the world.

Forth, condemning terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and rejecting any attempt to link it to any religion, culture or people, and reaffirming our commitment to support and strengthen the international cooperation in combating and eliminating it.

Fifth, emphasizing the centrality of the Palestinian question to the OIC, and the necessity of reaching a peaceful, comprehensive and just solution to the Arab Israeli conflict, as it is a main goal for our organization, in accordance with all relevant international resolutions; ensuring the protection of the rights of the Palestinian people and establishing the independent state of Palestine with Al Quds Asharif its capital ; and the liberation of all occupied Arab territories in Palestine , Syria and Lebanon.

Sixth, affirming the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Iraq; refraining from interfering in its internal affairs; providing the necessary support for its government and people to reinforce the efforts geared towards the achievement of national unity and maintenance of security and stability in it and continue supporting the process of its reconstruction so that it could regain its natural role in the world.

Seventh, supporting the right of countries, under the supervision of IAAE, to the peaceful use of Atomic energy, and stressing the urgency of dealing with the Iranian nuclear issue by peaceful means through negotiations between all concerned parties; ensuring a peaceful permanent settlement that ensures not to jeopardize the peace and security in the region and avoids any escalation in confrontation. It is important that the world deal with this matter transparently, in a way that ensures the implementation of all UN relevant resolutions including those calling for the establishment of a zone free of weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons in the Middle East and the Arabian Gulf. Accordingly, it is imperative that Israel joins the NPT and subject all its nuclear facilities to the supervision of the International Agency for Atomic Energy.
