The 9th round of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Parliamentary Union Summit convened in Tehran on Monday morning with Iran’s Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani as the head.
Larijani took over to title of the Speaker of the union from the Sudanian National Assembly Speaker Fateh Azizuldin Mansour.
The meeting started with President Hassan Rouhani's inaugural speech.
Calling Muslims for robust cooperation to improve the global status of Islamic states, Rouhani said that it is not proportionate with Muslims’ dignity to allow foreigners help Syria.
47 parliamentary delegations from 53 countries member to the OIC Parliamentary Union have attended the event, Sharq Daily says.
