The KAICIID Deputy Secretary General Claudia Bandion-Ortner welcomed a delegation from the Youth Council of the Islamic Faith Community in Austria (or Jugendrat der Islamischen Glaubensgemeinschaft in Österreich) to the KAICIID Dialogue Centre on 4 April 2014.

The delegation was led by Abdi Tasdögen, Federal Chairman, and included Ismail Koc, Secretary General, Hurije Ajredini, National Board member, Fahad Al Rawi, Social Representative and Muammer Akkaya, Personal Assistant to the Chairman.

Abdi Tasdögen, Federal Chairman, said: "KAICIID is an exciting project that seeks to promote global dialogue and understanding. Therefore, we appreciate that KAICIID is active at a local level too. As the first European country to recognize Islam over a century ago, Austria created at the state level the conditions for intercultural dialogue that have already borne fruit. As the Youth Council of the Islamic Community in Austria, it is important for us to be here at KAICIID, and we look forward to enhanced exchange."
