Rejecting "outrightly" all such references, the external affairs ministry said, "The OIC has no locus standi on India's internal affairs. We strongly advise the OIC to refrain from making such references in future."

India notes with "utmost regret" that the OIC, during its 44th Session of the Council of Foreign Ministers in Abidjan in Cote d'Ivoire on 10-11 July, again adopted certain resolutions which contain "factually incorrect and misleading references" to matters internal to India, including the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, which is the country's integral part, it said.

At the OIC Contact Group on Jammu and Kashmir meet, its secretary general Yousef A Al-Othaimeen highlighted the OIC's activities in dealing with the question of Jammu and Kashmir.

He also re-affirmed "the principled position of the OIC in fully supporting the people of Jammu and Kashmir in their struggle to achieve their legitimate rights, in particular the right to self-determination and human rights".

The OIC has 57 states as its members that include Turkey, UAE, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
