Three distinct committee sessions simulating an OIC Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) session, were held: “Countering terrorism and extremism: discussion of the joint efforts of Islamic countries against terrorism and extremism, including the exchange of intelligence information, joint military operations and deradicalization programs”, “Humanitarian Aid and Refugee Management: Exploring the role of Islamic countries in humanitarian aid, support for peace and stability in the OIC region, and effective management of refugee crises”, and “Strengthening of the security of non-nuclear-weapon states against the use or threat of use of nuclear weapons”. Between the committee sessions, participants enjoyed coffee breaks.

The main purpose of the OIC Foreign Ministers Council Simulation Conference, which was attended by more than 42 Azerbaijani youth was to provide the participants with practical experience in International Relations and Diplomacy, as well as important topics on the OIC agenda.
