The 13th session of the assembly is being held via videoconferencing with the participation of experts and personalities from 50 Islamic countries.
Ali Akbar Velayati, the assembly’s secretary general, is going to address the meeting.
He earlier described the moves by the two Persian Gulf Arab countries as wrong and very harmful and said the assembly considers it a duty to do something by holding the extraordinary meeting.
On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump hosted a ceremony at the White House to sign agreements aiming to formalize ties between the UAE, Bahrain and the occupying regime of Israel.
The deals were signed between Emirati and Bahraini Foreign Ministers, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, and Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, with the US president also inking his blessing to the controversial accords.
Abu Dhabi and Manama signed the US-brokered deals after going back on their long-held assertions that they would normalize ties with the occupying regime only after Palestinians’ grievances were addressed and an independent Palestinian state was established with the holy city of Jerusalem al-Quds as its capital.
