BREAKING NEWS | UNESCO Selects Saudi Arabia For Setting Up Regional Center For Dialogue, Peace

RIYADH/SAUDI ARABIA – The UNESCO Executive Council unanimously approved establishment of a Regional Center for Dialogue and Peace in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia under the supervision of King Abdulaziz Center for National Dialogue.

Speaking on the subject to Asharq Al-Awsat, Egyptian political analyst Emam Gharib said: “The decision adds to Saudi Arabia’s poise in international forums through the unanimous approval of the United Nations (UNESCO), the largest global cultural organization”.

“It also comes in light of the efforts exerted by the Kingdom through Vision 2030 in the field of supporting dialogue and peace and promoting peaceful coexistence among different peoples”, he added.

Gharib also noted that the decision to establish the center “shows international recognition for the Kingdom’s role in fostering dialogue and reflects its achievements on promoting dialogue and peace on local, regional and international levels”.

Disseminating the culture of dialogue in Saudi Arabia and exporting it abroad is an important principle sought by decision makers in the Kingdom.

Egyptian writer Emile Amin, in his remarks at the Peace for Cultural Connection convention, which was hosted recently in Riyadh, said that the initiative represents a “Saudi gateway for peace in the world and a platform for open dialogue among Saudis and other communities”.
