OIC Secretary-General meets Pope Francis

(Vatican City) – The Secretary-General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, has discussed issues of mutual concern with Pope Francis during an audience at Vatican City. This was the first ever meeting between an OIC Secretary-General and Pope.
The OIC Secretary-General expressed his appreciation for the audience with Pope Francis and commended his vision to revitalise dialogue between Christians and Muslims at a time when this dialogue has taken on ever-greater importance, as today the presence of Muslims in historically Christian countries has expanded, while some OIC countries either have native Christian communities or have witnessed the arrival of Christians as guest workers in recent years.
