External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj addresses inaugural plenary of Foreign Ministers’ meet of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Abu Dhabi.
Swaraj will attend the inaugural plenary of the two-day meeting on Friday. It is for the first time that India has been invited to a meeting of the OIC, an influential grouping of 57 Islamic countries, as the guest of honour.
India’s engagement with the OIC comes in the midst of escalating tension between India and Pakistan.
