Muslim World League chief meets with Russia-Islamic World delegation

The Secretary-General of the Muslim World League (MWL) Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa received the coordinator of the Russia-Islamic World strategic vision group, Dr. Veniamin Popov, and his accompanying delegation in Riyadh on Wednesday.

During the meeting, a number of issues of common interest were discussed.

The Russia-Islamic World strategic vision group was established in 2006, in response to Russia joining the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) as an observer.

The group currently consists of over 30 officials and prominent public figures from 27 Muslim countries. 

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin said: “I would like to stress that the Islamic world can fully count on Russia’s help and support.”

“We are ready to boost cooperation with our partners in confronting terrorist forces as well as in search for ways to peacefully resolve regional crises,” Putin said in an address to participants of the strategic vision group.
