The CEO of the Federation of Latin American News Agencies stresses the role of the media in finding a solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict

grandmother (UNA) - CEO of the Federation of Latin American News Agencies, Juan Manuel, stressed that professional, objective and reliable media is a key factor in promoting a solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict that guarantees peace and stability in the Middle East.

This came during his participation in the media forum: “Media and Palestinian Right: Practical steps to build on initiatives to recognize Palestine,” which was held via video conference on Sunday (June 9, 2024) and organized by the Union of News Agencies of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) countries.UNA), and the Assistant Secretariat for Institutional Communication of the Muslim World League, with the participation of news agencies in Islamic countries, international media unions, heads of international news agencies, and an elite group of diplomatic and intellectual figures.

He pointed out that news agency correspondents witness daily the massacres committed against the Palestinian people, which the vast majority of humanity is ashamed of.

He added: When the deafening sound of bombs and tanks fades, and the war leaves thousands of innocent people dead and millions starving without shelter or work, the international community must not only contribute to the physical reconstruction of Gaza, but also to building the Palestinian state.

He pointed out that since the beginning of the conflict, the media has played an important role by covering the violence against the Palestinian people and presenting a professional and objective picture of the crimes committed, indicating that the media coverage of the conflict has returned to the agenda of international discussions ending the Israeli occupation and ensuring the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.

It is noteworthy that the forum issued a number of recommendations at the conclusion of its work, including eleven executive initiatives that enhance Islamic and international media support to defend the rights of the Palestinian people.
