Iran, Other Islamic States May Call for UN Meeting (Lebanon)
Iran, Other Islamic States May Call for UN Meeting

Iran, Turkey, Pakistan and 15 other states said they will call for a meeting of the UN General Assembly to achieve a cease-fire in the Middle East should the UN Security Council fail to end hostilities immediately. The UN Security Council should enforce an "unconditional'' cease-fire without delay, the Organization of Islamic Conference said today in a statement after meeting in Malaysia. The group said OIC countries should cooperate with UN members to support a General Assembly meeting in the absence of instant measures to end the fighting. "We strongly condemn the relentless Israeli aggression against Lebanon,'' the group said. "We express our concern at the inability of the UN Security Council to take the necessary actions for a cease-fire.'' The OIC meeting, convened by Malaysia, is the largest gathering of Muslim nations since war broke out in Lebanon last month.
