RIYADH: Muhamed Jusic, ambassador of Bosnia and Herzegovina to Saudi Arabia, recently called on the president of the Islamic University of Madinah, Prince Dr. Mamdouh bin Saud bin Thunayan.

The prince presented an overview of the university, its various scientific and research tracks, its global mission to serve the Islamic religion and society, as well as what the university offers to international students.
Earlier, Jusic met the Saudi-Bosnian Parliamentary Friendship Committee of the Shoura Council, where the two sides stressed the importance of supporting aspects of cooperation and strengthening joint work between the Shoura Council and the Bosnian parliament, commending Saudi-Bosnian relations and bilateral cooperation in all fields.
In March, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan held a meeting with his Bosnia and Herzegovinian counterpart Bisera Turkovic in Riyadh, during which they discussed bilateral relations between the two countries and ways to support and enhance them in a way that serves their common interests.
The two countries share cordial relations, and the King Fahd Cultural Center in Sarajevo is an important link between them. The center plays a key role in building cultural relations, and serves Bosnian society by organizing educational and sports activities.
The center consists of a mosque, sports and educational centers, and a market. The educational center offers free education, while the mosque is currently Bosnia’s biggest, with a capacity of 1,500 people.
The center is one of the largest and most important support projects provided by the Kingdom to Bosnia and Herzegovina.
