Saudi-Moroccan rejection of a  proposal for Yemen in final statement of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation


The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Morocco rejected a proposal made by the Turkish delegation during the 14th session of the Conference of the Union of member States of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which was hosted by the capital, Rabat, to include a paragraph on the "humanitarian situation in Yemen" in the final communique.

According to the Lebanese newspaper "AL-Akhbar ", the decision to reject Saudi Arabia and Morocco for the final statement of a paragraph on the humanitarian situation in Yemen was on the pretext that it was not previously put before the Executive Committee.

According to the newspaper, the Turkish proposal was supported by the Sudan, Syria, Lebanon, and the entire African Group, while the president of the Saudi Shura Council, Abdullah al-Shaikh, rejected it, supported by the speaker of the Moroccan Parliament, Habib al-Maliki, who asked the secretariat to prepare a report on the "situation of Muslims in Yemen and other countries to discuss it later.  "

Early this year, Morocco suspended its participation in the Saudi-led Arab coalition in Yemen, due to the humanitarian situation in Yemen and crimes committed against civilians.

The Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Nasser Bourita, saidto a Tv show on Al-Jazeera on 23 January, that "Morocco has changed its  participation in the Arab coalition in Yemen" on the basis of developments on the ground and from The Alliance's measure, judging from Morocco's own assessment of developments in Yemen  ".
