Astana - The UAE will spare no efforts to end the tragic situation and protect civilians in Libya through its active implementation of relevant international resolutions on Libya, a senior UAE official affirmed yesterday.

Delivering the UAE address before the 38th Session of the Council of Foreign Ministers of Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) Member States which is held under the motto of "peace, cooperation and development" in Kazakhstan, Dr. Saeed Mohammed Al Shamsi, Assistant UAE Foreign Minister for International Organisations, said the UAE, while enforcing the UN Security Council resolutions 1970 and 1973 on Libya, it would pursue delivery of humanitarian assistance to the Libyan people in coordination with the Libyan Red Crescent and international relief agencies.

He recalled that then UAE had recognised the National Transitional Council (TNC) as the sole, legitimate representative of the Libyan people. He said that UAE's dealing with the TNC will take the form of a government-to- government relationship in all issues related to Libya.

The UAE, he added, welcomed the OIC's continuous engagement IN international efforts rescue Libya from the current calamity.

On Yemen, Al Shamsi said the UAE along with fellow GCC states were looking forward to help Yemen overcome its political crisis. 'As the current chairman of the GCC, the UAE announces the sincere desire of the group to resume their mediation if the Yemeni rivals asked them to do so,' he explained.

Al Shamsi voiced the UAE's full support for the OIC in its efforts to stand to Islamophobia, extremism, smear campaigns against Islam and Islamic sanctuaries, and called for pooling all energies to promote the culture of tolerance, moderation and genuine Islamic values.

He also expressed the UAE's vehement denunciation of terrorism in all its manifestations and sources, and cited the UAE's local, regional and international efforts to fighting organised crimes, money laundering and trafficking in persons.

The foreign ministry official elaborated the UAE's attitudes towards the Palestinian Cause, Afghanistan, renewable and nuclear energy.

"Sheikh Abdullah said the UAE will open a representative office in Benghazi soon.

"There is no legitimacy in Libya today but of the NTC. We will work towards helping our Libyan brothers out of this difficult situation and look forward to build a brighter future that would enable Libya regain its natural position among countries of the world." - Emirates News In his opening remarks, President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev has proposed that the member states of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) develop a joint action plan on technical and investment cooperation in the energy sphere.

"The Islamic world needs to switch from being a mere supplier of raw materials to industrial and innovative development. I suggest developing and adopting a joint action plan on technical and investment cooperation in the energy sphere and setting up an international investment centre," Nazarbayev said.

According to Nazarbayev, large-scale investment in the energy sphere is vital.

In his report to the meeting, Prof. Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, OIC Secretary General, addressed the OIC efforts concerning landmark events taking place in a number of Member States in pursuit of good governance, political participation, ensuring fundamental liberties, promoting transparency and accountability and combating corruption as provided for in the OIC Ten-Year Programme of Action.

This session is particularly important in that it will crown a process of reform and development launched in 2005 by adopting a new name and logo for the Organisation. This change will not be a matter of form only. Rather, it will form a quantum leap in the work of the Organisation and a response to its expanding mandate and to Member States' aspirations to serve as their strategic framework for cooperation and interaction.

This session will be an opportunity for a mid-term review of the OIC Ten-Year Programme of Action which covers the period 2005-2015.
