JEDDAH: Yousef bin Ahmad Al-Othaimeen, secretary-general of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), said that the visit of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Britain, the US, France and Spain provided a true picture of Islam and Muslims and helped to remove negative stereotypes.
He congratulated King Salman and the crown prince on the achievements of the tour on the political, economic and intellectual levels.
He highlighted the crown princes remarks in all his media interviews on the purity of Islam from extremism and Muslims from terrorism. He noted what the crown prince said in France about Saudi Arabia having great regional weight and its membership of three blocs: The GCC, the Arab League and the OIC.
Al-Othaimeen said that Saudi Arabia established the OIC to support the Palestinian cause and Islamic issues. The OIC is the second largest international organization after the UN. It is based in Saudi Arabia and includes 57 Islamic member states.
