The session was long awaited by Pakistan, which had earlier convened an emergency meeting of the CFM to take a tough decision on India, in which it had annulled the special status of Indian Kashmir.
However, an emergency meeting could not be convened despite numerous efforts and requests from Saudi Arabia.
The meeting is expected to be attended by representatives of 57 OIC member states and five observer states.
FM and Azad Kashmir President Sardar Masood Khan are expected to discuss human rights violations in Indian-administered Kashmir.
