Islamic leaders condemn Afghan intervention

Islamic leaders meeting here Sunday condemned the Soviet Union's intervention in Afghanistan and expressed concern that the Soviet military push might not stop there. Pakistani President Muhammad Zia ulHaq told a special meeting of Islamic foreign ministers: "If this precedent is allowed to perpetuate itself, then what has happened in Afghanistan could happen to another country tomorrow."

President Zia also told members attending an emergency meeting of the Islamic Conference Organization that they should not be satisfied with just issuing declarations against the Soviet Union but should take concrete steps to get the Kremlin's armed forces out of Afghanistan.
