MOSCOW — The Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences has awarded an honorary doctorate on Dr. Muhammad Bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, secretary general of the Muslim World League (MWL), for his efforts in promoting relations between the Muslim World and Russia.

The secretary general expressed his pride on being awarded the honorary doctorate by one of the most prestigious academic institutions of the world. The over 200 year-old institute is renowned for its distinguished, impartial and fair studies of Islam.

Al-Issa also praised the Russian Federation's care for the Arab and Islamic culture and its keenness to communicate with the Muslim World, learn its language and understand its culture.

"The award contributed to changing the stereotype of Orientalism in the Muslim World and encouraged cultural communication between nations and peoples,” Al-Issa said.

The ceremony was attended by representatives of the Russian presidency, the Duma and the senate, and diplomats, as well as senior academics of Orientalism, religious leaders and a group of researchers and students. — SPA
