Head of Islamic bloc to visit Palestine

Aug. 25, 2013 9:43 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 26, 2013 3:34 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The secretary general of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, will visit Palestine on Wednesday, the group said.

The two-day visit will see Ihsanoglu meet with President Abbas and a senior PA delegation to discuss the latest developments in peace talks.

The visit is also a demonstration of the OIC's support for Palestine and aims to "shine the spotlight again on the Palestinian cause," the OIC's website says.

Ihsanoglu has visited Palestine several times over the past few years, with the latest visit aiming to show that Palestine still tops the OIC's agenda, the group said.

The 57-member OIC, based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is the world's top Islamic body.
