Participants in the "Chinese-Arab Media Dialogue Conference,"
which kicked off in Cairo on Monday, called for enhancing means of
mutual media cooperation, deeming it as "witnesses and protectors for
Sino-Arab friendship." The conference came at the eve of
Chinese President Xi Jinping's five-day tour to the region, including
Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Iran. "The Chinese-Arab media is a
momentum for change and a registrar for the events," said Jiang Jianguo,
minister of the State Council Information Office of China. Jiang suggested four ideas for increasing mutual cooperation in the media. The first is cooperation in
raising the voice of peace and common development, as he said "the media
personnel has a role in directing the public opinion and upholding the
peace norms at wider range to positively enhance consensus in views and
increase the positive energy towards peaceful development."He added that "we should cooperate hand in hand to combat all shapes of terrorism firmly."
