Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Vice Foreign Minister A.M. Fachir will lead the Indonesian delegation to the 45th Ministerial Level Conference of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) which will be held in Dhaka, Bangladesh, from May 5 to 6 this year.

The OIC Ministerial Level Conference this year will be themed Islamic Values for Sustainable Peace, Solidarity, and Prosperity, spokesman for the Foreign Ministry Arrmanatha Nasir said here on Thursday.

At the conference, the Indonesian delegation will raise a number of issues, including ways to improve the performance of OIC member states in addressing the global challenges and specific challenges facing them, he said.

The other issue that the Indonesian delegation will raise at the conference is the effort to increase cooperation among OIC member states in the economic and health fields, he said.

"In addition, there will also be a meeting themed humanitarian challenges facing OIC member states, including the impact of Rohingya refugees," he said.
