/PanARMENIAN.Net/ "Karabakh is a problem not only for Azerbaijan, but
also the whole Islamic world," stated representative of the
International Islamic Youth Conference Saad bin Fahd al Khiid. In his
turn leader of the board of Muslims of the Caucasus sheik ul-Islam
Allahshukur Pashazade stated that the Islamic Conferences is the only
organization that backs the Azerbaijani position in the Karabakh
settlement. He stated it when commenting on the visit of Azeri
President Ilham Aliyev to Qatar to meet with Islamic Conferences
leaders. Azerbaijan is member of the Islamic Conferences since 1992,
however official Baku becoming close with the organization takes
place recently after the Islamic Conferences member countries
supported Azerbaijan in its initiative to submit the Nagorno Karabakh
problem for discussion by the UN. Meanwhile, Islamists, in the
opinion of many political scientists, can become an actual political
force in Azerbaijan in the near future.
