The chief of the world's largest Islamic grouping was in Indonesia on Monday to discuss ways to resolve spiraling violence in the Middle East, government officials said. Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, secretary-general of the 57-member Organization of the Islamic Conference, was holding day-long talks with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and other government leaders on Iraq, Palestine and Lebanon, said Foreign Minister Hassan Wirajuda. Israel's excavation work at a sacred religious site in Jerusalem's Old City was also likely be raised, he said. Ihsanoglu's visit to Indonesia follows a pledge by Yudhoyono to work with "like-minded Muslim nations" to ease tensions in the Middle East, saying US influence in the region is too great. Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim nation.
