Info. Min.: Al-Arabi magazone pan-Arab cultural beacon

Minister of Information Abdulrahman Al-Mutairi said Thursday Al-Arabi magazine was a pan-Arab cultural beacon since its establishment in 1958.

Intellectuals, writers and men of letters have contributions to Al-Arabi magazine which is an added value to Arab literature, Al-Mutairi, also Minister of State for Youth Affairs, said in a statement during a visit to the magazine.

“We seek in the coming period to see further development of this iconic magazine, through expanded meetings with writers and Kuwait Writers Association to have a harmonious path with New Kuwait 2035 vision,” he said.

Kamel Al-Abduljalil, Secretary General of the National Council for Culture, Art and Letters, said Al-Arabi magazine “is Kuwait’s cultural ambassador to the Arab world.” Al-Arabi, he added, included a cultural heritage which gave the publication a heavy cultural weight.

Al-Arabi Chief Editor Ibrahim Al-Mulaifi, speaking to KUNA, said they discussed with Al-Mutairi the activation of the magazine’s online contents.

He said there were plans to distribute Al-Arabi magazine in five European countries.
