Kuwaiti-Jordanian media forum opens amid growing challenges




(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) AMMAN, June 23 (KUNA) -- Media experts and officials from Jordan and Kuwait assembled in the Hashemite Kingdom's capital on Sunday for talks over the difficulties facing the industry.
Jordan and Kuwait have long shared an impenetrable relationship, Jordan's Information Minister Jumana Ghunaimat said amid a joint Kuwaiti and Jordanian media forum, sponsored by Prime Minister Omar Razzaz.
The talks come at a time where the wider Arab region is plunged into tumult, which highlights the media's increasingly significant role in such times of adversity, the minister explained.
The media's role includes but is not limited to efforts to clamp down on fake news and the spread of misinformation that often hide the truth, added the minister.
The talks allow Kuwait and Jordan the opportunity for further cooperation, said Adel Al-Zaabi, an advisor at the Gulf state's embassy in the Jordanian capital.
He described the forum as a "window" for dialogue between media specialists from both countries, giving them the chance to exchange views on a wide array of matters.
The talks bring into focus the similarities both nations share on the cultural and intellectual fronts, according to the media forum's secretary general Mansoor Al-Ajmi.
The two-day event, attended by representatives of various Kuwaiti government bodies, features a plethora of seminars and lectures germane to the media. (end)
