Egypt: Preparations Finalized for Hosting OIC Summit

Egypt has finalized preparations to host the 12th Islamic Summit, due to be held on February 6-7, announced Deputy Assistant Foreign Minister for Non-Aligned Affairs and Islamic Cooperation Ambassador Amr Ramadan.

During his meeting with reporters on Wednesday 31/1/2013, Ramadan said 26 Heads of State, who are members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), have confirmed that they would attend the summit.

About 46 OIC member States said they will attend the summit, he stressed, brushing aside allegations about the possibility of putting off the summit or changing its venue.

The summit and its preparatory ministerial meeting will be held in Cairo's hotels, Ramadan said.
