JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia - The head of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) said on Wednesday the world's largest Islamic body will try to resolve the political crisis in Syria internally and oppose moves to take the issue to the international community.

"We are keen to preserve Syria's safety, security and stability, and insist on rejecting the internationalization of the Syrian crisis and on working towards resolving it within the broader Islamic family as represented by the OIC," Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu said in the Saudi Red Sea port city of Jeddah.

"We need to reiterate our stand against any internationalization of the Syrian crisis," he told an OIC meeting expected to focus on Syria's crackdown that has killed more than 3,500 people and drawn global condemnation and sanctions from the Arab League.
