    The Organization of Islamic
    Cooperation(OIC) signed a
    Memorandum of Understanding
    with the US Agency for
    International Aid (USAID) on
    Thursday, 15 March 2012, at the White House in Washington, on
    the periphery of a visit
    undertaken by the OIC
    Secretary General, Prof.
    Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, to the
    United States. The MoU was signed by Prof. Ihsanoglu for
    the OIC and by Mr. Rajiv Shah,
    for USAID. The signing of this
    agreement was preceded by a
    string of negotiations carried
    out by the OIC Humanitarian Affairs Department with the
    Agency. The Agreement in
    itself represents a clear
    framework for the
    advancement of cooperation
    between the OIC and the American Agency, bearing in
    mind that the United States of
    America is one
    of the major donors in terms of
    international assistance while
    the OIC, with its active involvement in humanitarian
    and developmental activity, can
    be a significant mainstay in
    favour of complementary roles
    leading to the smooth
    channeling of humanitarian assistance to the needy. The
    MoU provides for cooperation
    between the two parties
    concerned, for joint action in
    addressing crises and
    humanitarian disasters and for consolidated cooperation
    among the Member States, in
    addition to the exchange of
    expertise and the initiation of
    a strategic dialogue in the area
    of a humanitarian relief. It also points to the need for close
    cooperation and consultation
    between the two parties over
    issues of common interest, in
    addition to coordination,
    information management and emergency support
    mobilization in the case of
    natural catastrophes, all
    through regular and periodic
    meetings between the OIC and
    USAID. The MoU includes an item on the exchange of
    information in the area of
    humanitarian aid with a view
    to filling any gaps in terms of
    the required data on any
    humanitarian issue. It also calls for joint action between the
    two parties and for the
    exchange of training programs
    for their respective staff.
    Cooperation also extends to
    bilateral coordination during recovery stages in the disaster-
    stricken areas, and this would
    entail, according to the MoU,
    the need for the conclusion of
    another agreement to define
    the executive aspect in post- crisis stages, such as the
    requirements of anticipated
    projects, the allocated
    resources and the timelines for
    such programs and projects
    along with a review of objectives achieved at every

    It is natural for organizations with similar interests to have a mutual understanding.
