IINA, Organization of Islamic Broadcasting boards meet in Riyadh Tuesday
A+ A-

RIYADH, -- (KUNA) -- Riyadh will host on Tuesday the first meeting of the boards of the Islamic International News Agency (IINA) and the Organization of Islamic Broadcasting, to be chaired by Saudi Minister of Culture and Information Iyad Madani.

The meeting comes in line with the recommendations by the seventh session of the Islamic Conference of Information Ministers held in Jeddah, Saudi Arabic, last September, on restructuring both institutions for the sake of enhancing effectiveness in accordance with the aims set by the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) and their own aims.

This includes reforming their boards of directors to include some director generals of news agencies and television officials in Muslim countries.

The session urged the preparation of two studies for developing the IINA and the broadcast organization for achieving aims adopted in the work program that was approved by the third extraordinary session of the Islamic Summit, held in Makkah in December.

Head of the KUNA office in Riyadh Abdulrazzaq Al-Huzami will take part in the meeting on behalf of KUNA's Chairman and Director General Sheikh Mubarak Duaij Al-Ibrahim Al-Sabah, who is also chairman of the Federation of the Arab News Agencies (FANA).
