Islamabad raises issues with OIC-CFM Dhaka Declaration
Pakistan has raised some issues regarding the Dhaka Declaration at the recently held 45th session of the Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). In a statement issued on Monday, the Pakistan High Commission in Dhaka said the host country circulated the text of the Dhaka Declaration just before the conference concluded. “It only reflected the views of the host country, and therefore, was issued under its own responsibility, signifying that the text was neither discussed nor negotiated by the participating states," the statement said. The Pakistan High Commission also said the declaration was without prejudice to the well-established positions of the OIC member states and the organization, as enshrined in the CFM and Summit documents. Bangladesh has ruled out Pakistan's claim, saying nothing was done without consultation with the OIC Secretariat. “Everything was done following directives and suggestions from the OIC Secretariat,” State Minister for Foreign Affairs M Shahriar Alam told UNB on Monday.

He said the OIC member states were consulted as well. "Still, if anyone has any grievances, they should inform the OIC Secretariat first." Bangladesh hosted the event following the theme “Islamic Values for Sustainable Peace, Solidarity and Development” on May 5-6. Pakistan also said its foreign secretary spoke at length about the tragic plight of the Rohingya Muslims and Palestinians and expressed Pakistan's full solidarity with them. The OIC member states expressed deep concern over the recent systematic brutal acts perpetrated by Myanmar security forces against the Rohingya Muslims in Rakhine that has reached the level of ethnic cleansing – constituting a serious and blatant violation of international law. They commended the personal leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in addressing the Rohingyas' plight and seeking strong international support to resolve the crisis and full implementation of the recommendations put forward by the Advisory Commission on Rakhine State (Annan Commission). The OIC underlined the importance of members states continuing to remain engaged in the UN system, including the UN General Assembly and Human Rights Council, as well as with other relevant international organizations to address the massive human rights violations that the Rohingyas are suffering. The member states welcomed the resolution adopted on the situation of the Rohingya community and agreed to address the accountability issue for the violation of Rohingyas’ human rights through the formation of an ad hoc ministerial committee, to be chaired by Gambia.
