H.E. Prof. Koutoub Moustapha Sano, Secretary General of the Academy, held a meeting on Wednesday, 4 Dhul Quidah 1444, corresponding to 24 May 2023, at the headquarters of the Secretariat General of the Academy with H.E. Ambassador Tariq Bakhit, Assistant Secretary General for Humanitarian, Cultural and Social Affairs of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and his Special Envoy to Afghanistan, and with H.E. Mr. Muhammad Saeed Al-Ayyash, Director General of the OIC Office in Kabul. The meeting was convened to discuss the final preparations for the upcoming visit of the Ummah scholars to Afghanistan to meet with representatives of the ruling authority. The purpose of this visit is to discuss with them the latest developments related to girls’ education, women’s participation in progress, and the promotion of cooperation, communication and integration among all parts of the Afghan people.
This meeting follows the resolutions of the Ministerial Council of Foreign Ministers of the OIC Member States at their recent conferences, which mandated the Academy to lead a delegation of scholars to visit Afghanistan. It should be noted that a delegation of scholars from the Ummah already visited Kabul last year and this visit is a continuation of the previous one.
The meeting was attended by Mr. Mohamed Chouk, Director of Cabinet and Judicial Affairs, and Mr. Mohamed Al-Fihri, Director of Administrative and Financial Affairs.
