The initiative was considered as one of an outcome of the 19th Arab Summit Resolutions, which was held in Riyadh in 2007, under the chairmanship of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and called for strengthening the presence of the Arabic language in all fields, including media; communications, Internet, science and technology.
