OIC secretary general due in Dhaka on Wednesday
Dr Yousef bin Ahmad Al-Othaimeen, secretary general of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), is due to arrive in Dhaka on Wednesday for a four-day visit to Bangladesh. The secretary general, who will lead a five-member delegation to Bangladesh, is scheduled to visit the refugee camps in Cox's Bazar to observe the state of the Rohingya Muslims who were forced to leave their homes in Rakhine, Myanmar to escape military persecution. He will also be briefed by the local administration and representatives of international humanitarian organisations working there. During his visit, Dr Al-Othaimeen will call on President Md Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday. He will also hold a meeting with Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali in the evening at the State Guest House Padma. This is Dr Al-Othaimeen's first visit to Bangladesh since he assumed the office of OIC secretary general. Sources in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs say it is an opportunity for him to get familiarised with Bangladesh, a country playing an increasingly important role in the OIC. He is expected to seek views and suggestions of Bangladeshi leadership on various OIC issues and matters of importance to the Muslim community. As Bangladesh is going to host the 45th OIC Council of Foreign Ministers next year, this visit will allow discussion on Bangladesh-OIC Secretariat cooperation apart from various other areas of bilateral cooperation.
