ISESCO should play role of bridge between cultures, says director general

Baku: ISESCO should play a role of a bridge between cultures, the organization’s Director General Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri said.

He made the remarks on Monday during the 36th session of the ISESCO Executive Council in Baku.

Altwaijri expressed concern over the ongoing clashes in the Muslim world.

“ISESCO should create conditions for the Muslim community, deprived of scientific, cultural and educational opportunities,” the director general said, noting the importance of strengthening the Muslim brotherhood in terms of eradicating terrorism.

According to him, there is a need to prevent the spread of Western disinformation about the Islamic civilization.

Altwaijri also expressed regret over Muslim organizations’ failure to raise their voices in the international area. “We must show that Islam is a religion of peace, education and culture. In the future, we must pay attention to the role of the media in this area,” he said.

As for relations with Azerbaijan, the director general said ISESCO has close and productive relations with this country. “ISESCO and Azerbaijan have jointly organized a number of events so far with the support of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.”

He said ISESCO held various events over a decade. “Holding the general conference of ISESCO in this beautiful country is an indication of excellent relations of the organization with Azerbaijan,” he noted.

Altwaijri also expressed gratitude to Azerbaijan for holding the 36th session of the ISESCO Executive Council.

“Our positions have strengthened and we should further strengthen them. The preparation for a new action plan was launched at the session of ISESCO Executive Council. We will also review budget issues in this regard. We are at the beginning of a new stage and strengthening our positions. We perceive our great duties and responsibility. We should serve the Islamic ummah and achieve development strengthening education and expanding scientific researches,” he added.
