IRCICA Director General visits ISESCO

The Director General of the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO), Dr Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri, today in his office, received the Director General of the Istanbul-based Research Centre for Islamic History, Art and Culture (IRCICA), Dr Halit Eren.

Talks during this meeting centered on ways of promoting cooperation relations between ISESCO and IRCICA and prospects of their development in fields of common interest under the cooperation agreement signed at ISESCO headquarters in 2006.

On this occasion, Dr Eren presented Dr Altwaijri with a copy of the documentary book published by IRCICA which features reproductions of historical photographs of Makka al-Mukarramah and al-Madina al-Munawwarah from the Ottoman period.

IRCICA was established in 1980 as a subsidiary organ of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
