The exchange of Islamic television programmes for broadcast has been agreed in principle by Malaysia and Saudi Arabia.

Visiting the 2014 Asia Media Summit in Jeddah, Communication and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek told Bernama: "We also produce many good programmes and I believe they will be well accepted if aired in Arabian countries."

Ahmad Shabery met with Saudi Arabia's Minister of Culture and Information, Dr Abdul Aziz Muhiuddin Khoja, during the event, which was organised by the Asia Pacific Institute for Broadcasting Development.

The Asia Media Summit has been hosting 500 media executives from across Asia, Europe and the Arab world.
