12 May 2020
Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, Director General of the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO), conveyed three messages to ambassadors and representatives of the international organizations accredited to the Kingdom of Morocco, at the 84th Diplomatic Forum, held via videoconferencing by the Diplomatic Institution in Rabat, on “The role of the international organizations in the management of Covid-19 crisis: ICESCO as a case study”.
In his response to the questions of the ambassadors participating in the Forum, Dr. AlMalik’s first message underlined that ICESCO is an open and specialized international organization which provides its services to Member States, cooperates with non- Member States, and serves the peoples of its Member States and humanity as a whole without discrimination based on race, gender or religion.
In his second message, ICESCO Director-General highlighted that the Organization has redrafted its Charter and Administrative and Financial Regulations and set a new status for the the Observer States at ICESCO, calling upon the ambassadors accredited to the Kingdom of Morocco from non-Member States to inform the competent parties in their countries to join ICESCO as Observer Members.
The third message called on donor countries and institutions, sovereign funds and the international cooperation agencies to join the Comprehensive Humanitarian Coalition, launched by ICESCO and whose executive projects and field programmes target poor and affected countries.
The Forum witnessed a considerable interaction from the ambassadors and representatives of the international organizations accredited to Rabat. On his part, Dr. AlMalik answered their questions on the nature of ICESCO’s action and efforts geared toward supporting Member States in countering the repercussions of Covid-19, as well as its achievements over the last year since Dr. AlMalik took office as Director-General on 09 May 2019. Furthermore, Dr. AlMalik stressed that ICESCO neither addresses the term “Islamophobia” nor participates in any discourses in this regard. “This is a strange term. Civilizations and cultures complement each other and are not rivals. We should rather focus on developing a better future for humanity instead of wasting our efforts and time in such pointless controversies,” he added.
