Ambassador Abdulla Saif Al Nuaimi of the United Arab Emirates in Seoul was nominated by Director General Koh Kyung-sok of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea to take part in ‘Live Together’ campaign and he nominated Ambassador Bader Mohammad Al Awadi of the State of Kuwait in Seoul.
The ‘Live Together’ campaign is a global movement against racism and discrimination, raising solidarity and inclusion in the international community to cope with hate crimes that have become more serious due to the prolonged COVID-19.
It is jointly launched by UNESCO and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea.
This joining the campaign will be of great help for raising social solidarity against racism and discrimination.
It should be noted that the UAE criminalizes any acts that may fuel religious hatred or underestimate religion through any form of expression, regardless of whether it is a speech, a written word, books, publications, or publishing on social media platforms on the Internet.
The UAE also established a working group on countering violent extremism of the Global Counter-Terrorism Forum in 2011. It was co-chaired by the UAE and the United Kingdom until September 2017 and created for the first time the position of Minister of State for Tolerance in 2016, when His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Prime Minister and Vice President of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai, announced structural changes that would enhance the UAE's commitment to eliminating intellectual, cultural and religious intolerance in society.
