Oman donates US$ 300,000 for ISESCO permanent headquarters in Rabat
On the directives of Oman's ruler, Qaboos bin Saeed, the Sultanate has granted the Islamic Education Sciences and Culture Organisation (ISESCO) an amount of US$ 300,000 to complete its permanent headquarters in Rabat, Morocco.
Abdullah bin Mohammed al-Farsi, the Sultanate’s Ambassador to Morocco handed over the cheque to Dr. Abdul-Aziz bin Uthman al-Tuwaijri, ISESCO director-general when he met him recently, ONA reported.
Al-Tuwaijri visited the Sultanate of Oman from March 15th to 17th at the invitation of Yahya bin Saud al-Sulaimi, Education Minister and chairman of the Omani national committee for education, culture and sciences.
During that visit, he presented the Sultan with the ISESCO Shield in recognition of the latter’s continued support to the organisation and joint Islamic action.
The ISESCO permanent headquarters is to open in May 2005 on the occasion of the 23rd Anniversary of the organisation’s establishment. (albawaba.com)
