UAE at the forefront of media freedom in the region

The media should highlight an accurate picture of the Arab World and its issues, according to Mona Al Merri, Director General of the Dubai Government Media Office.

Speaking on the sidelines of the event, Al Merri said that the forum reflects Arab culture, nature and religion and its role and humanity, and noted that the current conditions and problems of the Arab World have defamed the image of the Arab World and its values. The media, she should, needs to shed light on the positive aspect of the region and its humanitarian issues.

The US government considers media freedom an integral part of its diplomatic efforts, according to Mark Toner, Deputy Spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Arab Media Forum, Toner noted that "without a doubt, press freedom is always going to be an essential element of US foreign policy, just like human rights are an essential element of our foreign policy."

"In all of our multilateral, and especially bilateral relationships, we are always going to address the hard issues regarding human rights, including press freedom and harassment of journalists, when we have credible allegations of that," he added.

Toner noted, however, that diplomatic efforts regarding press freedom must be balanced with "broader strategic interests."

Muslims must educate the West about Islam

It is every Muslim's responsibility to spread the right message about Islam, urged Princess Ameera Al Taweel on the second day of the 15th Arab Media Forum.

Speaking in a session titled "Inspiration for Good: Humanitarian messages," the active humanitarian and philanthropist referred to the recent negative connotation associated with the phrase 'Allahu Akbar' (Allah is great) that extremists tend to scream before their acts of violence.
