Postscript:

A 2006 report by the OIC Secretary General reviews talking points given to them by the MNLF and GRP regarding the implementation status of key provisions. The OIC makes no independent judgments of its own. 

A 2008 report by the Organization of the Islamic Conference describes a “First Session of the Tripartite Meeting” between the GRP, MNLF and the OIC that took place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia in November 2007. Hence the first meeting of the two conflict actors with the external body chosen to review implementation of the 1996 agreement, took place 12 years after the signing of the accord.1
