Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, OIC, has mourned the death of Prince Saud
Al-Faisal, former Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs who dedicated a life time
serving his country and Arab and Islamic causes.
Secretary-General of the OIC, Iyad Ameen Madani, expressing his
deep sadness at the passing away of Prince Saud Al-Faisal, said that for four
decades, Prince Saud was the flagship of Saudi diplomacy and always in the
front lines defending and promoting Arab and Muslim interests.
"His wisdom, clear vision, through understanding and full
grasp of the issues will be sorely missed," he added.
The Secretary-General added that the world will forever remember
Prince Saud Al-Faisal as a towering figure of modern diplomacy; and as a leader
who fought for the belief and principles of his country, for Arab and Muslim
convictions and for peace, stability, understanding and tolerance in the world.
Madani offered his heartfelt condolences to the Custodian of the
Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, the royal family, Prince
Saud's family and to the people of Saudi Arabia at their loss.
