ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has become the deputy chair of the general body of the Parliamentary Union of the OIC Member States (PUIC).
According to an official announcement on Tuesday, Pakistan has been elected deputy chairman of the PUIC's general body on the first day of its four-day conference currently being held in Rabat, Morocco, reports Dawn news.
The PUIC is composed of the parliaments of member states of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation. It was established in Iran on June 17, 1999, with its head office situated in Tehran.
Earlier this month, Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi opted to miss the OIC foreign ministerial meeting after the organisation invited India's External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to be a guest of honour at the conference. Swaraj made history by becoming the first Indian invitee to an OIC summit, when she delivered an address at the OIC foreign ministers' meeting in Abu Dhabi.
