Accompanied by Chairman of the State Council of Tatarstan Farid Mukhametshin, he proceeded to visit the History Museum, the Imperial Ballroom, and the Lenin Memorial Classroom. Vice-Rector Linar Latypov represented KFU.
Later, at the Institute of International Relations, History and Oriental Studies the guest familiarized himself with the Islamica Resource Center and the Al-Khadara Center of Arabic Culture.
Mr. Al-Othaimeen then gave a lecture. He spoke about the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, whose main goal is to stimulate Islamic solidarity. The OIC aims to formulate political stance on various global events. He said, “Kazan Federal University is a great institution with rich history. I am glad to be here and meet these enthusiastic students. I have come to like this University because, despite having the word ‘federal’ in its title, it has students of many nations who live together peacefully. Students must be proud to learn their craft here.”
As some of the other guests this week, the Secretary-General arrived to Kazan to partake in KazanSummit 2018. He thanked Speaker Mukhametshin for the warm welcome.
