The Director General of the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO), Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, today in Paris, met with Mr. Arrmanatha Nasir, Ambassador of Indonesia to France and Permanent Delegate to UNESCO.

During this meeting on the sidelines of the 40th UNESCO General Conference being held in Paris, the two parties examined the development of cooperation between the Organization and Indonesia, under ISESCO’s new vision that seeks to make of the Organization a beacon of outreach in the fields of education, science and culture for Muslim countries and the world at large.

Moreover, the two parties agreed to jointly work to make the activities and programmes, implemented in cooperation with ISESCO in Indonesia, more efficient and beneficial to their targeted categories, namely those overseen by the League of the Institutions of Teaching Arabic to non-Arabic Speakers, an institution largely welcome by ISESCO’s Members States in the African and Asian regions.

With a population of 238 million people, Indonesia is the fourth densely populated country in the world and the world’s largest predominantly Muslim country. Indonesia joined ISESCO in 1986. Its National Commission for ISESCO is presided by the Ministry of Religious Affairs.
