The Government of Malaysia has set aside a sum of Malaysian Ringgit 105 million for hosting the Islamic Summit in October, according to the Malaysian Foreign Affairs office here. Some commentators in the Muslim world have said that though it is useful for the various delegations to meet and discuss various matters and renew the unity of the Muslim Ummah, more needs to be done in reducing the cost of such meetings, and in increasing the effectiveness of their recommendations, which, in their opinion, should also be binding.
