The OIC meeting will review the recent terrorist attack against
two mosques in New Zealand which claimed the lives of tens of
Muslims and left 50 others injured.
Earlier, following the brutal incident, Zarif called his Turkish
counterpart, who is the rotating head of the OIC and asked for an
extraordinary meeting of the OIC.
During his phone talk with Cavusoglu last week, Zarif strongly
condemned the killing of Muslims and the terrorist attack in New
Zealand while calling for taking an appropriate reaction by Muslim
countries towards the horrific crime.
At least 49 people were killed, and 50 others seriously injured,
after gunmen opened fire at two mosques in the New Zealand's city
of Christchurch earlier in March when hundreds of Muslims had
gathered to say their prayers.
