Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, in turn, skipped the Kuala Lumpur Summit of Islamic nations and stunned the South-East Asian country.

The Kuala Lumpur Summit was hosted by Malaysian PM Mahathir Mohamad from December 19-21 and was being seen as an attempt to create a new bloc in the Muslim world that could challenge the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) led by Saudi Arabia.

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation was founded in 1969, consisting of 57 member states and comprising 53 countries being Muslim-majority countries. The OIC has permanent delegations to the United Nations and the European Union and led by the Arab block. The official languages of the OIC are Arabic, English, and French.

PM Khan had earlier confirmed his participation at the KL Summit which was expected to explore new and workable solutions for problems afflicting the Muslim world. Now in a damage control mode, Imran Khan is now expected to visit Malaysia, ending January.

Earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blamed Saudi Arabia for pressurizing Pakistan into withdrawing from the Kuala Lumpur Summit in Malaysia.
