"PARAMARIBO, Suriname — During his two-day visit to the Dutch-speaking Republic of Suriname, a Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member state on the northern coast of South America, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) secretary general, Dr Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, on Monday toured two iconic landmarks in downtown Paramaribo — a synagogue and a mosque that face each other.
