Muslim leaders have concluded the 8th two-yearly D-8 economic cooperation summit in Pakistan with a commitment to peace and democracy, as fighting continues to rage in Syria and a fragile ceasefire settles over Israel and the Gaza Strip following an 8-day escalation of hostilities.
The global summit established by former Turkish Prime Minister Necmettin Erbakan in 1997, brings together an economic bloc of 8 developing Muslim nations including Egypt, Iran and Pakistan, in a bid to strengthen trade relations and economic development.

 

Speaking at the conference, Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, condemned Israeli airstrikes on Gaza which he described as “expansionist policies and atrocities”, calling on Muslim nations to create a “new world order”bringing an end to capitalism and capitalists.

 

Iran recently admitted to providing its Gazan ally, Hamas, with technology to build long-distance missiles, at least one of which militants claim to have fired at Tel Aviv during the recent violence.
