(Jeddah-AlummahWorld, Ramadan 24, 1436, July 11, 2015) With deep sorrow and grief the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) mourns the death of His Royal Highness Prince Saud Al-Faisal, former Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs who dedicated a life time serving his country and Arab and Islamic causes.

The Secretary General of the OIC, Iyad Ameen Madani, expressing his deep sadness at the passing away of Prince Saud Al-Faisal, said that for four decades, Prince Saud was the flagship of Saudi diplomacy and always in the front lines defending and promoting Arab and Muslim interests. His wisdom, clear vision, thorough understanding and full grasp of the issues will be sorely missed, he added.

The Secretary General added that the world will forever remember Prince Saud Al-Faisal as a towering figure of modern diplomacy; and as a leader who fought for the belief and principles of his country, for Arab and Muslim convictions and for peace, stability, understanding and tolerance in the world.

Madani offered his heartfelt condolences to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, the royal family, Prince Saud's family and to the people of Saudi Arabia at their loss.
