RABAT, October 20 (Itar-Tass) - The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) supports Saudi Arabia, which announced its waiver of the non-permanent membership in the United Nations Security Council last Friday, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation said in a communiqué on Sunday.

Saudi Arabia explained its move by the United Nations inability to take real measures to settle military conflicts, primarily in Syria.

The secretary general of the world’s biggest pan-Islamic intergovernmental organization, which unites 57 nations, expressed the hope that Saudi Arabia’s refusal to take a non-permanent member seat in the United Nations Security Council would help speed up reforms of the Security Council to make it more transparent and representative.

The OIC members states are interested in reforms of the United Nations Security Council and think it necessary to ensure their representations in that body that would reflect the demographic and political weight of Muslims, of which there are about 1.5 billion across the globe, the statements said.
