The 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) pledged on Sunday to help achieve peace in Afghanistan and said its future leaders must guard against allowing the country to be used as a platform or safe haven for “terrorists.”
The organization urged “the future Afghan leadership” and the international community to work together to ensure that Afghanistan is never again used as a backyard for international militancy.

The statement called on Afghan parties to resolve their differences “peacefully.”
