Earlier too, the OIC has commented on the Kashmir issue. However, MEA India has chosen to not react to the issue. The OIC is the same group that had invited India as the special guest earlier this year. Former External Affairs Minister Late. Sushma Swaraj had attended the meet.
While Pakistan is trying to internationalise the Kashmir issue, India has made it clear that Kashmir is India’s ‘Internal’ issue.
