(MENAFN - Arab News) A high-level Saudi delegation led by Prince Abdulaziz bin Abdullah, vice minister of foreign affairs, will participate in a high-profile ministerial meeting organized by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Conakry, the capital of Guinea, on Monday, said Osama Nugali, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
This meeting will address a range of key regional and international issues and elect a new OIC assistant secretary-general.
The #Guinea session will also herald the arrival of the new OIC secretary-general, Iyad Madani, the former Saudi culture and information minister, after two game-changing terms of Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu of Turkey. Madani will take over from Ihsanoglu following the meeting on Jan. 31.
Madani, the first Saudi OIC secretary-general, will be joined by a new assistant secretary-general, who will be elected during the Conakry session. "Pakistan has fielded and approved the canidature of Muhammad Naeem Khan, its current ambassador to Saudi Arabia, who is likely to win," said Khayam Akbar, charge d'affaires at the #Pakistan Embassy.

Afghanistan has fielded Nangyalai Tarzi, the country's ambassador to Geneva.
"It remains unclear whether the three other candidates from Malaysia, #Indonesia and also #Afghanistan are still in the race for the OIC job," said Akbar.
Pakistani Ambassador Khan has left for Conakry, said the diplomat, adding that the Kingdom has lent support to the Pakistani candidate for the OIC's position.
An OIC statement said that the meeting will discuss the whole gamut of issues confronting the Muslim world today. It will review a recommendation that calls for severing diplomatic ties with countries that either recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital or have moved their embassies there. A special session on the status of Jerusalem will take place on the sidelines of the meeting, it added.
