The visit took place during ICESCO DG’s participation in the opening session of the Arabic Language Summit and the 22nd Session of the Conference of Ministers Responsible for Cultural Affairs in the Arab World that the UAE Ministry of Culture and Youth held in cooperation with the Arab League Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (ALECSO).
Dr. AlMalik toured the pavilions of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Morocco, Egypt, and Mauritania. During the tour, ICESCO DG was introduced to exhibits reflecting the progress of the civilization, culture and identity of each country, and portraying its abundant heritage and tremendous potential.
Dr. AlMalik hailed the pavilions’ sophistication and splendor which reflect the richness and authenticity of their respective countries’ heritage.
