Interaction between cultures prevents spectre of violence, extremism forever

ALGIERS- Interaction between cultures would help prevent the spectre of violence and extremism forever, said Friday in Tunis Minister of Culture Azzeddine Mihoubi in his address at the first meeting of Culture Ministers of the member states of 5+5 Dialogue.

The minister recalled the key role of culture in the Mediterranean region, "which has witnessed a melting pot of cultures that has enriched our knowledge and contributed to the development of the successive civilizations."

Mihoubi said that "today, there are many challenges, especially the spread of extremist ideas, the use of violence to terrorize, the exploitation of religions for evil purposes, and denying the right to be different and freedom of expression."

"Culture can find solutions to these challenges and build a message of hope and promote the acceptance of diversity as richness of humanity," said the minister.

"Algeria is ready to host any seminar on mechanisms for the support of public and private investment in the sector of culture," added Mihoubi.

The minister stressed the need to "strengthen cultural exchanges between 5+5 dialogue member states."
