JEDDAH, Feb 23 (KUNA) -- Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu on Thursday expressed resentment over the burning of copies of the holy Quran by US forces in Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan.
In a press statement, Ihsanoglu described the incident as an "unfortunate induction," calling for state authorities to take full, urgent, and appropriate disciplining measures against those responsible for this act.
He stressed that such an act is contrary to joint efforts between OIC and International community, including the US, in fighting racism and induction of hatred in accordance with religion and belief.
On the other hand, Ihsanoglu welcomed statements by some US officials that condemned the action and affirmed a thorough investigation to be taken soon regarding the issue to thwart further similar action.
U.S. officials have repeatedly apologized over the embarrassing incident which threatens the International Security Assistance Forces efforts to build trust with Afghanis. Defense Department Secretary Leon Panetta has pledged to carefully review the final results of an investigation into the matter. (end) yms.ma KUNA 232020 Feb 12NNNN
