Kuwait urges approving Arab media strategy to establish tolerance, moderation


BEIRUT, March 20 -- It is imperative to work on approving a strategy to be abided by all Arab media institutions so as to establish values of moderation, love and tolerance.

This came during a speech of Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs and Acting Information Minister Sheikh Mohammad Al-Abdullah Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah that was delivered on his behalf by Assistant Undersecretary of the Information Ministry Faisal Al-Mutallaqem on Monday during a media conference on civilization and dialogue.

Such values form basics in combating terrorism, which has false cultural concepts, Al-Mutallaqem said.

The State of Kuwait has drawn up a national media strategy currently implemented by both official and private media outlets in order to establish stability and societal security, he added.

Earlier today, Al-Mutallaqem said Kuwait is eager to cope with the new media concept due to its due role in influencing public opinion and inter-cultural communication.

Organized by Lebanon's National News Agency (NNA), the conference was held under the patronage of Lebanese Minister of Information Melhem Riachi and attracted a constellation of Arab and foreign politicians and diplomats, as well as news agencies' chiefs.

Addressing the conference entitled: "Media Spreading Civilizations and Connecting Dialogues", the Riachi stressed the significance of ensuring media objectivity and protection of truth.

The conference also discussed role of media in enhancing dialogue amongst different cultures and religions, as well as media challenges. It featured a number of Arab media people, academics and specialists.
