Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said in his speech at the opening of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation conference, held for the 12th time in Cairo, that Egypt is committed to supporting the Palestinian nation. Morsi said "we must continue acting in order to stop the feverish development in the Palestinian territories." He called upon the international community to stop illegitimate settlement.
"We stand before great challenges, the Palestinian issue, which tops the list, is the yardstick for the foundation of stability in the Islamic world." (Roi Kais)
