" Madani also paid a visit to the Combined Military Hospital and inquired about the health of the injured children."
Islamabad, Dec 21 - The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is planning to hold a peace conference in Peshawar to adopt a joint strategy against terrorism, media reported Sunday.

The announcement in the regard was made by OIC secretary general Iyad Amin Madani during a meeting with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak Saturday, Dawn online reported.

Madani condemned the Taliban attack on the Army Public School Dec 16, which resulted in the death of 148 people, including 132 children, and expressed sympathy with the families of those who lost their lives in the attack.

KP Senior Minister for Health Shahram Khan Tarakai, Minister for Education Atif Khan and senior government officials were also present in the meeting.

The chief minister said the provincial government was organising a team of psychiatrists who would help the school children come out of the trauma.

The OIC chief also called on Governor Sardar Mahtab Ahmad Khan and expressed sympathy over the loss of innocent lives in the school attack.

The terrorists cannot be called Pakistanis, Muslims or even human beings because of their deplorable acts. They do not deserve any sympathy for their inhuman act and I am here to express the deep sense of feelings of OIC members, Madani said.

Madani also paid a visit to the Combined Military Hospital and inquired about the health of the injured children.

The date of the conference has not been announced yet.
