The international media forum in Jeddah unveiled the Jeddah Charter for Media Responsibility, emphasizing the commitment to human dignity, shared moral principles, and safeguarding human rights across identities. The charter calls for respecting individuals' right to choose orientations and refraining from disseminating content infringing upon others' rights. It condemns negative phenomena, emphasizes cultural diversity, and denounces Islamophobia. Recommendations include unified international laws for media ethics, criminalizing hate crimes, and supporting media correspondents. The forum introduces the Islamic News Agency Award for Media Professionalism and urges global media institutions to adopt the charter as a reference for responsible practices.
