The Islamic Solidarity Sports Federation (ISSF), chaired by His Royal Highness Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Saud, has assigned Nasser Ayman Majali, Secretary General of the Jordan Olympic Committee, as its new Secretary General.
His Royal Highness also sent warm wishes to HE Al Garnas who has taken up the position of an advisor to the ISSF President.
The ISSF is an independent sporting body with 57 representative countries coming under the framework of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and works in accordance with the Olympic movement and international sports federations.
It was first created during the third Islamic Summit Conference held in Makkah Al-Mukarramah and the city of Taif in 1401 AH, (1981) which stipulated that the Federation would support the development of sport among the member states of the Organization of the Islamic Conference.
The ISSF holds the successful Islamic Solidarity Games every four years, an event that has grown in stature and participation. It also organises and supervises a number of other sporting events across the member states on an annual basis.
