“Assalamu Aleykum and Congratulations to all ICYF-DC community. Just few moments ago OIC Foreign Ministerial Conference adopted resolution on Islamic Conference Youth Forum for Dialogue and Cooperation. The document stipulates the role of ICYF-DC as being leading OIC institution in the area of youth policy, approves the Forum’s projects and programmes for a year ahead.
Of particular importance are the following initiatives approved by the Conference being the first in the history of the Ummah:
1. Holding a year long programme of “Istanbul – OIC Youth Capital” ( for the first time in OIC history)
2. Holding of first ever pre-OIC Youth Summit in 2016
3. Approval of ICYF- DC “10 Goals in 10 Years” Declaration as OIC youth strategy (first ever) for the next 10 years
I wish these and other programmes be for good of OIC youth; serve for strengthening Muslim youth development and solidarity; support our dialogue with the world; and call for all members and partners for exerting necessary efforts for implementations of the great volume of work ahead. I thank our collegues at ICYF-DC Headquerters, OIC General Secretariat and all partners who worked hard for several months for development of this resolution and apprecaite decision by brotherly OIC Member States Ministers for its unilateral approval.
