The Council of Foreign Ministers of the Developing-8 Organization for Economic Cooperation (D8), said it will convene its Extraordinary Meeting on Saturday, June 8, 2024, in Istanbul, Türkiye, to discuss the continued deteriorating situation in the Gaza Strip, Palestine.

In a statement on Friday by Mr. Ilham Uludag on behalf of D-8, he said the Extraordinary Meeting will take place inside the historic Dolmabahçe Palace in the City of Istanbul.

“The meeting will be organized at the invitation of the Turkish Foreign Minister, Mr. Hakan Fidan, and it is expected to galvanize further support and solidarity within the D-8 alliance for the people of Palestine, particularly those residing in the besieged Gaza Strip, against the backdrop of continued and indiscriminate yet senseless bombardments of the territory by the Israeli occupation forces.

“The extraordinary meeting, in which Ministers and a high-ranking delegation from the D-8 Member States have confirmed their attendance, will discuss humanitarian assistance and other necessary relief materials to help ease the Palestinian people’s current hardships and sufferings.

“Also, the Istanbul meeting of the D8 Foreign Ministers will help draw the attention of the global community to the act of genocide of Israel, as the occupying power, against the Palestinians, as well as increase diplomatic pressure on the occupying power to stop the indiscriminate killings of the residents of Gaza strip,” he said.

According to the statement, the meeting is also set to provide humanitarian assistance to Palestinians who are in desperate need of food, medicine, and other relief materials.

“The Council of Foreign Ministers is the D-8 Organization’s political decision-making organ. The meeting is expected to conclude with a joint declaration of the D-8 member states,” he added.
