OIC denounces Trump’s offensive remarks on African countries

Jeddah (UNA-OIC) � The General Secretariat of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) strongly condemned the offensive and racist comments that incite hatred, which were made by the president of the United States against African nations and other countries, and went viral on social media on Saturday.

The General Secretariat expressed its deep dismay over the remarks against the African countries, which are independent and sovereign states with deep-rooted history, as well as being an integral part of the international community.

The Organization considered that these statements, if confirmed, incite hatred against the other and underestimate the entire continent.

The General Secretariat called for the avoidance of compromising sensitivities and the fundamental human values and dignity as well as respect for pluralism, one of the applicable international norms.

OIC Secretary General Dr. Yousef bin Ahmed Al-Othaimeen expressed the Organization's position, which is consistent with that of the United Nations and the African Union in this regard.
