Metrotvnews.com, Tashkent: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has agreed to establish the Contact Group on Peace and Conflict Resolution (CG-PCR).

It was decided at the 43rd session of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the OIC in Tashkent, Uzbekistan on Wednesday (10/19).

"CG-PCR is a forum to share experience," said Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi in a written statement.

Retno explained the contact group is intended to bring peace in the Islamic world. It is also beneficial to tackle terrorism and radicalism.

The contact group was proposed by President Joko Widodo at the Asian-African Summit in Jakarta last year.
