News Agencies at UAE Summit Sign Document Promoting Tolerance

DUBAI, UAE – News agencies from over 20 countries signed on Sunday a joint document in which they vowed to cooperate to promote values of tolerance and understanding between different people and religions through their news content.

In the document, signed at the World Government Summit held in the United Arab Emirates, the signatories assumed their “responsibilities and obligations” toward the community, the institutions and individuals, and declared their intention to help promote values and principles of tolerance.

They also stressed their commitment to “sustainable development” and contributing to “building tolerant communities, developing civilizations, and planting the values and principles of cultural and religious tolerance in them.”

The accord also includes a commitment to the exchange of written news, graphic material, video and other material that helps transmit the principle of tolerance.

The signatories also vowed to exchange news that promotes the concept of coexistence between peoples and cultures and related to initiatives that seek to boost the values and principles of tolerance and dialogue among cultures and civilizations.

The exchange will also include news related to cultural and social programs that contribute to establishing tolerance in communities.

The other signatories of the accord are Saudi Press Agency, Yemen’s Saba, Kuwait’s Kuna, Ethiopia’s FANA and Bulgaria’s BTA, as well as the news agencies of Bahrein, Cyprus, Oman, Slovenia, Jordan and Lebanon.
