It underlined the need to work earnestly "in order to counter the political, economic and cultural challenges facing OIC member States."
The declaration underscored the necessity of working toward "preserving security and stability and opening venues of investment and sustainable development, with the aim of realising dignified life and prosperity for Muslim societies."
