In a meeting with the president of the Latin American Information Agency, Luis Enrique González, the young man of Saudi descent thanked the journalists of this media outlet for their support in different coverage, including OCE birth in January, 2020.
“We have to be proud of the legacy that the history of Prensa Latina has left,” he assured.
Bin Mussallam referred to the fundamental role of the media as democratizing instruments not only of information, but also of involving citizens and peoples in the collective efforts promoted by the organization he directs.
He commented that the OCE is the youngest intergovernmental formation at the international level founded by 27 States of Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia Pacific, as well as civil society organizations and global and regional organizations.
Our goal is to contribute to development through education, “contextualized in realities,” he said.
The organization arose under the principles of multilateralism, solidarity and self-determination, thereby serving to promote and facilitate “peer-to-peer” and “mutually beneficial” partnership cooperation among its member states.
According to its precepts, it seeks to contribute to the construction of a third, equitable and inclusive way of development, through and from a balanced and inclusive education.
We have a purpose that goes beyond our name, he noted, noting that the OCE aims to contribute to development through education.
González, for his part, confirmed to the visitor and his companions the decision to “continue working together” because the commitment of Prensa Latina is to transmit the truth, be objective and spread the message of the South, which has been part of its postulates since its emergence in 1959.
