He thanked the Saudi government for supporting the OIC, noting that “ISESCO has assisted the OIC’s member states in the promotion of culture, science, education and communications according to Islamic values and ideals.”

“The General Secretariat looks forward to further consulting with the ISESCO to establish joint programs that pave the way for a genuine partnership with member states in order to showcase the depth of Islamic culture,” he said.
