Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Dr. Yousef bin Ahmed Al-Othaimeen congratulated on Saturday King Salman on the fifth anniversary of his ascension to the throne.

“It is demonstrating the true image of moderate Islam,” he stressed, while citing Saudi Arabia’s “countless” achievements in the past five years.


He highlighted the Kingdom’s diversification of its sources of income, empowerment of women and the youth and hosting of next year’s G20 summit.
