JEDDAH (Reuters) - Afghan President Hamid Karzai cancelled on Wednesday a meeting with the worlds top Muslim body in Saudi Arabia that was aimed at pushing for dialogue to help reconciliation efforts with the Taliban. The meeting was called off because Karzai had reservations over the agenda, a senior Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) official said, without elaborating. An Afghan diplomat told Reuters that the meeting with the OIC, led by Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, was cancelled because the Afghan delegation wanted to visit Medina. Karzai arrived in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday to seek the kingdoms spiritual influence and financial clout to reconcile with the Taliban during talks with King Abdullah. The cancelled meeting would have addressed the OICs role in containing Afghan tensions and to follow up on an OIC bid to organise a conference for Islamic scholars from different religious authorities on the Afghan issue, the OIC said. We understand that Saudi Arabia supports this drive by the OIC for debate among Afghan religious leaders as a means to convince the Taliban to openly abandon al-Qaeda, the senior OIC official told Reuters by telephone from Jeddah. Reuters could not immediately reach OICs Ihsanoglu and Karzais spokesman Waheed Omer. The Saudi-based OIC has sought under Ihsanoglu - and with the open support of King Abdullah - to play a bigger role in solving Muslim world crises through debate.
