President Museveni has called on the Organization of Islamic
Cooperation (OIC) to increase investments in member state countries
especially in the areas of infrastructure development saying this
would boost economic development especially in the East African
region.

The President was last evening meeting the Secretary General of the
Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Mr. Iyad Ameen Madani at
State House Nakasero.

President Museveni and Mr. Madani stressed the need for unity among countries and the fight against extremist and sectarian ideologies that tear communities apart. The President said Uganda would be in danger if he used sectarianism to lead the country.

Mr. Madani said the economic potential for the East African region
would be great especially if Sudan and South Sudan join East African
countries to form a strong economic unit that can attract investments.

He thanked President Museveni for giving him the opportunity to
discuss some of the issues and for the cordial welcome.
The meeting was attended by the Minister of State for Foreign
Affairs(International Affairs) Hon. Okello Oryem and Uganda`s
Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Dr. Rashid Yahya Ssemuddu among others.
