ظریف چاووش اوغلو

Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif has strongly condemned a Friday terrorist attack on Muslim worshippers in New Zealand, calling on the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to hold an emergency session on the carnage.

In a phone conversation with Mevlut Cavusoglu, the Foreign Minister of Turkey, which is the rotating president of the OIC, Zarif called for appropriate reaction of Muslim states to this heinous crime.

The Iranian foreign minister pointed to the New Zealand terrorist attack as well as the Israeli soldiers’ recent insult to Muslims’ mosque in the occupied Palestine, and proposed that the OIC immediately holds an emergency meeting at the level of leaders or foreign ministers.
