DAMASCUS, (SANA) – The information committee responsible for formulating new media law held its first meeting on Wednesday, discussing the appropriate mechanisms to reach an integrated and comprehensive vision on audio-visual and print media.

The committee agreed on considering previous draft laws and benefiting from cooperation agreement signed between the Ministry of Information and the UNDP to provide technical and logistic support, in addition to reviewing the Arab and foreign media laws and the relevant UN principles as a reference for its work.

Taleb Qadi Amin, who has been elected as the committee chairman, said the committee includes media experts and specialists and it works within open prospects to set up a national media law that suits the current stage.

The committee will make use of the UNDP experts within the framework of the cooperation agreement signed between the two sides which provides for giving USD 450,000 grant to support improving the Syrian media, he said.

Amin added that the law will be published on Tasharukia website:  to share the Syrian citizens' viewpoints.

For his part, Ibrahim Yakhour said what makes this committee special is the fact that it is non-governmental and the members are participating as independent experts.
