Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, Director-General of the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO), and Dr. Ahmed Abbadi, Secretary-General of Mohammadia League of Scholars, examined the cooperation developments and the main joint programs and activities for the succeeding period.
During the meeting, held on Friday (February 18, 2022), at the League headquarters, in Rabat, in the presence of several officials from the League and ICESCO, the two parties underlined their desire to continue fruitful cooperation in the areas of common interest.
