The delegation met with the Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Amb. Essa Bokarr Sey and Senior Management of the Secretariat. 
He welcomed the team and extended gratitude to the government of Turkey for contributing immensely to the preparatory efforts. 
Following the courtesy call on the Secretariat, the delegation separately met with members of the Local Organizing Committee for the OIC Summit as well as the Security Subcommittee. 
Along similar lines, the visiting delegation on Monday also held closed-door meetings with the Minister of Interior and the Inspector General of Police.
