ICESCO and Bahrain Explore Cooperation Prospects
11 August 2020
Dr. Salim M. Al-Malik, Director-General (DG) of the Islamic World Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) met on Monday, August 10 with Mr. Khalid bin Salman bin Jabr Al-Musallam, Ambassador of Bahrain to Morocco, to explore ways to promote cooperation between the Organization and the Kingdom in the fields of education, science, and culture.
During the meeting, held at the Bahraini Embassy in Rabat, Dr. AlMalik highlighted ICESCO’s substantial initiatives, activities, and programs that support Member States’ efforts in mitigating the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The DG stated that these initiatives are part of the open-door policy in ICESCO’s vision and strategy to forge a sustainable relationship with its Member States. One result is to implement specific programs that correspond to their respective needs.
Dr. AlMalik also commented on the notably positive feedback ICESCO’s initiatives had received. One example is the “ICESCO Digital Home” initiative, which compiled a large and diverse collection of digital contents. The “Societies We Want” is also an initiative that provided humanitarian aids to the most vulnerable local communities in some states and supported young and women entrepreneurs in these societies.
The DG also mentioned the “Comprehensive Humanitarian Coalition Initiative,” which many countries, international organizations and institutions, and donors joined and supported. He invited Bahrain to, likewise, join the Coalition.
The Bahraini Ambassador underlined that he followed with great interest ICESCO’s projects during the COVID-19 pandemic. He also commended these efforts, which have immensely helped multiple Member States in the Organization, especially in Africa.
Ambassador Al-Musallam expressed his keenness to promote constructive cooperation between Bahrain and ICESCO in the fields of education, science, and culture.
