The two parties also discussed the cooperation relations between ICESCO and the Republic of Lebanon, including the signing of a special agreement on humanitarian assistance, in June 2022, to ensure the return of Lebanese students pursuing their studies in Ukraine, who were forced by the security situation to leave to neighboring countries.
The meeting focused on the possibility of cooperation in several programmes and projects on youth capacity-building and training on leadership, innovation, students’ mental health and the inscription of Lebanese heritage in ICESCO’s Islamic World Heritage List.
