In tandem with rapid global development in communications and information technology, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia have agreed to further enhance cooperation in the field, particularly those involving news exchanges.
Communications and Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Keruak said the cooperation between Malaysia and Saudi Arabia would be strengthened with the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the news agencies of both countries, Malaysian National News Agency (Bernama) and Saudi Press Agency (SPA), today in Kuala Lumpur.
He said Malaysia and Saudi Arabia would also review the MoU signed by the two countries on Dec 16, 1982.
“We agreed to review the MoU because many developments have taken place and the focus of both countries now is to look at the possibilities of other cooperation,” he said.
He told reporters this after receiving a courtesy call from Saudi Minister of Culture and Information Adel Zaid Al Toraifi today at his office at the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia (KKMM). – Bernama
