NNA - Final recommendations of 'Media Status in Arab World Today' Conference: For strategy that snubs terrorism and promotes dialogue



 


NNA - The one-day Conference titled "Media Status in the Arab World Today" wrapped up its sessions on Thursday evening by issuing a set of recommendations which highlighted the need for a strategy that snubs terrorism and extremism and promotes the concepts of dialogue and coexistence.


Information Minister, Melhem Riachi, inaugurated on Thursday morning a conference on media in the Arab world, jointly organized by the state-run National News Agency and the Swedish Institute Alexandria.


The recommendations were read out by the National News Agency Director Laure Sleiman and the Swedish Institute Alexandria Director Peter Weiderud.


Adopted recommendations emphasized the need for permanent communication as a prelude to a comprehensive dialogue amongst peoples "in a bid to break the wall that stands between them."


The Conference also called for devising an international and national Arab media strategy to rebuff terrorism and extremism and fight what it termed 'destructive ideas.'


The recommendations highlighted the necessity to uphold accuracy and truthfulness in disseminating information to the readers and the community, and to preserve the independence of the media and journalists under proper guidance in the welfare of public opinion.


The Conference also counseled media outlets to convey the realistic picture of any country rather than a distorted picture of the truth.


Conference proposals also advocated the urgent need to halt what it termed "misleading and brainwashing" attempts and discard the gear of "sectarianism, confessionalism and ethnicity" while spreading instead the concepts of dialogue and coexistence.


Final recommendations also called for shedding light on mankind-related issues, emphasizing that media "should be in the service of dialogue in the face of narrow-mindedness."


The Conference also recommended ensuring ample media coverage of sustainable development-related issues through an environment-specialized media and integrating such a novel specialization in universities and institutes.


Recommendations also upped calls for new modern laws that protect press liberties and journalists' rights.
