Saudi Arabia vows to promote moderate values

NEW YORK (Rahnuma): At a UN specialized sub-committee meeting as part of the 74th general assembly deliberations, Saudi Arabia stressed its keenness, through its media, to consolidate the approach of moderation, respect for rights and justice, reduce hate speech and combat extremism, and not allow terrorist and extremist groups to use media platforms to spread hatred and violence.

In a key speech before the Special Political Committee (Fourth Committee), Second Secretary Ibrahim bin Suleiman Al-Turki, a member of the Kingdom’s permanent delegation to the UN, talked about moderation enhancement and combating terrorism, as well as other issues concerning respecting rights and justice.

Al-Turki noted that the Kingdom’s government works through its media to highlight its economic, cultural and social mission, reflect the real image of the Saudi community and confirm to the whole world that Saudi citizens accept others and desire an intercultural dialogue.

He said: “My country hopes that the UN exerts more effort to carry out its responsibilities toward media outlets that incite hatred, extremism, violence and sabotage, strike to disturb security and stability, spread false reports, insult human dignity and abuse human rights.”
