PM returns home after attending 14th OIC Summit in Makkah.

ISLAMABAD -- Prime Minister Imran Khan returned home Saturday after concluding his visit to Saudi Arabia where he represented the country at the 14th summit of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), held in Makkah.

During his stay, the Prime Minister addressed the OIC forum and called for joint efforts by Muslim leaders against challenges including Islamophobia and to counter the narrative of 'Islamic terrorism'.

The Prime Minister also highlighted the genuine political struggle of Kashmiris and Palestinians for their right to self-determination, which he said could not be equated with terrorism.

On the sidelines of OIC Summit, the Prime Minister held meetings with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, Egypt's President Abdul Fattah El-Sisi and Bosnian President Sefik Dzaferovic.

The Prime Minister also performed Umrah in Makkah and paid respects at the Roza-e-Rasool (peace be upon Him) in Madina.
