    ISESCO Director General meets with UAE Minister of Culture

    14 November 2019

    Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, Director General of the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO), in Paris, discussed with Ms. Noura Al Kaabi, Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development of the United Arab Emirates, ways to promote cooperation between ISESCO and the United Arab Emirates in the field of culture.

    During this Meeting, Dr. AlMalik expressed his thanks to the UAE Government for their initiative to host ISESCO Executive Council, to be held in Abu Dhabi on 29-30 January 2020, which is expected to take milestone decisions related to ISESCO and adopt its new strategy and vision.

    The two parties agreed to work jointly to implement a number of programmes and provide support to a host of cultural initiatives within the framework of ISESCO’s new strategy and vision, and as part of its efforts to protect and conserve heritage in the Islamic world and preserve the civilizational Islamic identity against incitement to hatred, fanaticism and violence.

    This meeting was held on the sidelines of participation of Dr. AlMalik and Ms. Al Kaabi in the 40th General Conference of UNESCO, which kicked off last Tuesday in Paris with the participation of the representatives of UNESCO’s 193 Member States and 10 Associate Members, and the presence of international leaders, most notably the UN Secretary General, Mr. António Guterres.
