Our Kingdom… Civilization
Global echoes created by the Kingdom's diverse political, economic, cultural or social remarkable dynamic movement whose roadmap is inspired by the promising Vision 2030 with its entire diversity and ramifications that keep up with everything aimed to speed up the pace of change, development and modernization in the various joints of the State's institutions and sectors.
The Kingdom makes intensive efforts to enhance the value of civilizational dialogue as an important cultural path that bridges gaps and eliminates divergence and detestation fueled by civilizational conflicts based on racism, ethnic and racial discrimination and narrow ideologies that only bring destruction and killing to the world, waste its resources and take down its humankind and land.
The Kingdom's humanitarian efforts to achieve the well-being, peace and development of humankind have been made clear everywhere with no regard for such racially discriminatory and destructive differences. Anyone familiar with the Kingdom's efforts at the Islamic level and led by the Muslim World League (MWL), or the whole world, as evidenced by the efforts of centers concerned with the civilizational dialogue, such as the King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID); will recognize the tremendous efforts exerted by our wise leadership that seek welfare, love and compassion for the whole world.
Today, France is hosting the "Al-Ula, Wonder of Arabia" Exhibition, at the headquarters of the Arab World Institute in Paris. The exhibition reflects a series of these efforts aimed to promote the culture of dialogue and communication among peoples.
