President Mamnoon to represent Pakistan at OIC summit in Astana

The two-day Summit from September 10 to September 11 would take place in Astana, at which the discussion would cover wide range of issues related to scientific and technological issues, innovation and scientific research.

Kazakh Justice Minister Marat Beketayev and Astana's First Deputy Mayor Khoroshun Sergey Mikhailovich welcomed Hamid at the airport.

OIC Secretary-General Yousef Al-Othaimeen, in a speech before the opening session, said that this summit is a historic event, since it will be the first summit for OIC heads of state and government dedicated to promoting and developing the science and technology he described as "empowering tools", and factors promoting social and economic development in these states.

The president's entourage includes officials from the Office of the President, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Science and Technology.

"Mr. President will discuss bilateral relations and the most important regional and global issues in his meetings with some heads of states".

WHAT A DEFENSE: Mississippi State's defense had an impressive debut last weekend under new defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. It shouldn't take him long to get one, as he recorded his first sack previous year in the second game of the season.

Elsewhere in his address, the Iranian president said the OIC summit had the potential to be turned into a milestone in the history of scientific cooperation in the Muslim world.

Today, he said, the Muslim world feels the need for solidarity and unity more than ever as it is grappling with multiple crises, such as Israeli crimes against the Palestinians, atrocities by Buddhist extremists against Rohingya in Myanmar, humanitarian catastrophes created by extremist groups in Syria and Iraq and the continuation of the Saudi war on Yemen.

Participants at the summit are expected to adopt the Astana Declaration and the OIC Action Plan for the next 10 years, the FO said.

President Hamid will highlight Bangladesh's success stories, initiatives and projects in science and technology and make recommendations to the OIC, according to Abedin.
