The Council of Arab Information Ministers approved the internal bylaws of the Arab Institute for Peace and Journalism, for which the Libyan capital, Tripoli, was chosen as its headquarters.

This came during the activities of the 54th regular session, held in the Bahraini capital, Manama, in which the Minister of State for Communication and Political Affairs, Walid Al-Lafi, participated.

In his speech, Al-Lafi welcomed the steps aimed at establishing and approving the internal system and organizational structures of the Institute, as it is the first international institution affiliated with the League of Arab States with its permanent headquarters in Tripoli, calling for the completion of the steps for the opening.

Al-Lafi stressed the responsibility that the Arab media bears through various digital, media and audio interfaces, toward the massacres taking place in Gaza. He also reiterated Libya's support for Arab initiatives aimed at stopping the aggression, exposing the crimes of the occupation, and supporting youth initiatives in social media platforms in support of the Palestinian Cause.

Al-Lafi also called on Arab Information Ministers to participate in the activities of the Tripoli Media Days in its third edition, which will be held at the end of next December, coinciding with Libya’s celebrations of the 73rd anniversary of independence.
