The president of sanctions-hit Iran called Thursday for Muslim countries to cooperate in fighting US “economic terrorism” at the opening of a summit aimed at tackling the Islamic world’s woes.

Hundreds of delegates are attending the gathering in Malaysia — including heads of state and religious leaders — but the meeting has been snubbed by Saudi Arabia, home to Islam’s holiest shrines.

The summit has also been criticised for undermining the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), the Saudi-based global body representing Muslim nations and organisations.
