HRH Prince Moulay Rachid decorated ISESCO

Rabat, May 17, 2006

HRH Prince Moulay Rachid decorated Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri, the Moroccan director general of the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO), with the “Officer of the Wissam Alaouite Order” for the pan-Islamic organization's efforts to foster the Islamic culture.

“Officer of the Wissam Alaouite Order” is a military decoration of Morocco, which is bestowed upon those military officers who have displayed heroism in combat or have contributed meritorious service to the Moroccan state. Established by Sultan(King) Moulay Youssef of Morocco on 15.5.1913, the decoration is awarded in several grades, among which are the Medal, Cross, and Grand Cross.

His Royal Highness Prince Moulay Rachid - who spearheads the endorsement of image of Islam and world peace - early this month, has inaugurated the permanent headquarters of ISESCO, to enhance building the bridges of dialogue among cultures and civilizations.
