    ISESCO-Egypt committee to launch Cairo’s Celebration as Islamic Culture Capital

    14 January 2020

    The Director General of the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO), Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, received Mr. Ashraf Ibrahim, Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt to the Kingdom of Morocco, and together they explored ways to promote cooperation between ISESCO and Egypt in the next phase, under ISESCO’s new vision and in light of the selection of Cairo as the Arab region’s Islamic Culture Capital for 2020.

    During the meeting which was held at ISESCO headquarters in Rabat, Dr. AlMalik highlighted that the celebration would give new impetus to the special and continued cooperation ties between the Organization and Egypt. He also pointed out that the arrangements for the celebration should be carried out in a manner worthy of the history and standing of Cairo and its plethoric heritage landmarks and cultural institutions and events.

    The discussions also touched on strengthening cooperation between ISESCO and Egypt through inscribing the maximum possible number of Egyptian heritage and historic landmarks on the Islamic World Heritage List, organizing symposia and lectures in the educational, cultural, environmental and scientific fields and other areas falling under the realm of ISESCO’s competence.

    Moreover, the parties reviewed some proposed ideas about activities and programmes for implementation in 2020 as part of the Celebration.

    At the close of the meeting, the parties agreed to set up a joint committee of ISESCO and the competent Egyptian authorities to implement the activities and programmes. The committee will meet in Cairo at the start of February to put the finishing touches to the celebration.
