It was decided to establish a contact group at the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and Arab League Joint Summit held in Saudi Arabia's capital, Riyadh on Nov.11, according to information received from Turkish Foreign Ministry sources.

The contact group will hold meetings in both London and Paris on Wednesday. Turkish foreign minister is expected to meet with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and French President Emmanuel Macron during the visits.

Fidan will hold talks in Moscow on Tuesday. Because of this he could not attend the first two visits due to his participation in the discussions on the 2024 budget of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Turkish Grand National Assembly on Monday.

In this direction, a series of visits will be made, especially to the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council. The group made its first visit to Beijing yesterday. In this context, the group met with China’s foreign minister.

The contact group, which was established under the leadership of Turkiye, includes Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Indonesia, Nigeria, Qatar, Jordan, Palestine and the OIC Secretary General. The contact group, which was established with the priority of declaring a ceasefire as soon as possible and delivering humanitarian aid to Gaza, ultimately aims to contribute to a 2-state solution within the framework of internationally recognized parameters and for Palestinians to live in security, stability, and prosperity in their own countries.
