OIC to Suspend Syria at Mecca Summit

Iran Opposed Syrian Suspension

Foreign ministers at a meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) today agreed to suspend Syria from the OIC membership. The ministers were holding preparatory talks in Jeddah before a two-day OIC summit in Mecca starting on Tuesday.

“The session just ended. The ministers adopted the resolutions, including the suspension of Syria,” Reuters quoted an OIC official.

Meanwhile, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived in Mecca today to attend the summit. Iran had opposed the move to suspend the Syrian membership at OIC. Before the ministers meeting today, the country’s foreign minister told reporters that suspending Syria from the OIC “does not resolve anything.” Iran has also raised objection to the establishment of an internationally enforced no-fly zone over Syria.

Ahmadinejad found going to Mecca more important than visiting the earthquake stricken people of Azarbaijan.
The filthy theocracy must realize that Assad's days are over and soon so will the filthy theocracies.
