Egypt's delegation participating in the meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) stressed its refusal to link the terrorist attacks with Islam and the centrality of the Palestinian cause.

The Egyptian delegation, headed by Deputy Foreign Minister for African Affairs Ambassador Hamdy Loza, affirmed its support to the Sahel countries in face of terrorism as well as efforts exerted to achieve peace and security in Libya, Yemen, and Syria, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The delegation, during the two-day meeting held in Niamey, congratulated Sudan on signing the peace deal with the armed groups in Juba.

The meeting discussed many issues topped by combating terrorism and Islamophobia, the situation in Libya and Palestine, and the conflicts in some Islamic countries.

The meeting also unanimously agreed on electing ambassador Hussein Ibrahim to be the new OIC chief following Yousef Al-Othaimeen.

It is worth noting that Egypt won the highest votes for one of the three seats, allocated for the Arab states, at the elections of the OIC's Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission (IPHRC).
