The model conference was aimed at bringing the Muslim youth closer to each other to understand their cultures, the mutual problems and proposed solution and formed committees on different areas.
Youth delegates from various Muslim counties attended the event. A Turkish delegation visited Pakistan for the first time specifically for the event. Abdul Manafi Mutualo, Director General of Youth Programs at Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum, said on this occasion that the youth of Muslim Ummah should come up and contribute its part to resolve the mutual issues.

He urged the youth of Islamic counties to be more involved in such events to promote unity of the Muslim Ummah.
