During the meeting, the two parties discussed mechanisms for enhancing cooperation to serve Muslim societies, discuss coexistence issues, and emphasize the national state, citizenship, and integration. They also discussed the localization of the concepts of religious, ethnic, and cultural pluralism, in a way that achieves cooperation and solidarity for the benefit of nations worldwide.

They also weighed up enhancing the positive role of Muslims worldwide.
