The participants in the summit are going to discuss a range of regional issues including the fight against terrorism and extremism as well as the Palestinian issue. The heads of states in attendance will also hold bilateral talks on the sidelines of the summit. Before his departure for Istanbul, Rouhani said Iran has always seriously pursued the fight against terrorism and has given assistance to other nations to that end.

Rouhani made the remarks before flying to the Turkish port city of Istanbul to take part in the summit of the Islamic Cooperation Council, OIC. The Iranian president said the Muslim world is today facing the problem of terrorism, extremism and sectarianism. He also expressed regret over the fact that some Muslim countries have waged war against others. While noting that one of the objectives of the OIC is to create unity among Muslim nations, Rouhani said Iran hopes the organization will be able to resolve differences among Islamic governments.
