The Union of OIC News Agencies, he said, deals with the problems of the media in the framework of the Organization and is a kind of tribune for those who work in Islamic countries and with Islamic countries.
"I wish that your forum will also become a new tribune for solving urgent problems of our time," Al Qarni said.
The conference "Russia-Islamic World: Crossroads of Information Cooperation" is supported by the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the Union of OIC News Agencies and the Russian Union of Journalists.
The main topics for discussion are the prospects for cooperation between OIC countries and the Russian Federation in the media sphere, plans for potential cooperation with the involvement of interested organizations and agencies, as well as the creation of a practical platform for regular meetings of information specialists on the basis of the Group of Strategic Vision.
