Islamabad: Special Representative of OIC Secretary General on Kashmir would visit Islamabad and Muzaffarabad from Sept 14 to 16 to implement OIC resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir. Ambassador Ezzat Kamel Mufti will meet the top leadership of Pakistan and Azad Jammu & Kashmir. He will also hold meetings with representatives of APHC (AJK), and visit quake-affected areas of AJK. Ambassador Mufti will be accompanied by a four-member delegation comprising senior officials of the OIC General Secretariat, Islamic Development Bank (IDB) and Islamic Solidarity Fund (ISF). The mandate of Special Representative was approved by the Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers in Baku in June 2006.
