Saudi and Moroccan Ministers sign information cooperation program

 Rabat 10th May 2001

  Saudi Information Minister Dr. Fouad bin Abdul Salam Al-Farsy and Moroccan Minister of Culture and Communications Mohammed Al-Asha'ri signed here today an executive program for information cooperation between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Morocco. The program calls for the intensification of exchange of various radio and television programs relating to the national day of each country and the regular exchange of radio and television dispatches. It also calls for encouragement of joint production in the fields of television and radio programs and encouragement of exchange of visits between officials and experts in this field.

The two sides emphasized their encouragement for the expanding cooperation between the Saudi Press Agency and Arab Maghreb News Agency by concluding agreement on exchange of news bulletins by means of modern technology used by both of them; exchange of visits; training courses; providing available facilities to their correspondents; and encouragement of consultation between them and coordinating their stances in international arenas.

In the field of journalism, the program stressed the encouragement of cooperation between press establishments in the two countries; exchange of invitations of correspondents; facilitation of circulating the press and periodicals; exchange of media publications and documents; and encouragement of exchange of documents and information among media establishments.

The two sides noted that the program could be amended upon agreement of the two sides at any time. The program comes within the framework of implementation of the Cultural and Information Agreement signed between the two countries in 1966.

The signing ceremony was attended by Saudi Ambassador to Morocco Dr. Abdul Aziz bin Mohieddin Khojah and the advisor at the office of the Minister of Information Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Dayil.

During the signing ceremony, Dr. Al-Farsy expressed his pleasure on visiting Morocco and praised the desire of the Moroccan Minister of Culture and Communications to enhance cooperation. He expressed the hope that the program for information cooperation would yield good results in bilateral relations in the information field: “We can harmonize the two information sectors in the two countries through our joint action and prepare the ground for meetings and joint program production, with direct or indirect support, whether materially or not,” the Minister of Information added. He suggested this process could be a model for future action.

In a similar speech, the Moroccan Minister welcomed Dr. Al-Farsy and thanked him for responding to his invitation to visit ‘his second country’, Morocco. He explained that the talks between the two sides aimed at enhancing brotherly cooperation between the two countries and making it a model for information cooperation amongst Arab countries.
