The OIC chief arrived in Tehran on Tuesday and has held talks with senior Iranian officials, including President Hassan Rouhani.
Rouhani told the OIC chief that the organization must seek to make the voice of Muslims heard, stop insults to the religious beliefs held by Muslim nations and spare no effort to liberate the occupied Palestinian lands.
