Start of activity of the Islamic Conference Youth Forum is of great importance, and I consider this event as the most remarkable from those that occurred over the past years in the Muslim world.
The organization has been very successful from the start. All the organizational problems have been solved in the short period of time, and the Youth Forum has started to work very actively. It has great programs and plans. I don’t doubt that all plans will be realized. At the same time, I would like to note that joint activity of the Muslim Youth is also of great importance to our future.
I welcome the Founding of the Forum, consider it as a very important milestone, and I am convinced that its activity will bring us closer, and as a whole, will consolidate the organization of the Islamic Conference.
