The Kingdom has donated $1 million to the Islamic Museum in Australia (IMA). Presenting a check to Australian Foreign Minister Julie Joseph, Saudi Ambassador Nabil bin Mohammed Al-Saleh said the donation was given by the Saudi leadership in order to promote human values among nations in support of peaceful co-existence among all communities. Al-Saleh said that the Kingdom was interested in projecting the correct image of Islam.
The ceremony took place in Melbourne on the first anniversary of the Islamic Museum in Australia. In attendance were IMA President Ahmed Fahour and other distinguished guests.
Al-Saleh said the Saudi contribution would support the work of the museum in showing the characteristics of Islamic civilization and culture, which are characterized by diversity and are based on the principles of tolerance and peace.
