Iran attends Asia Media Summit 2017 in China

The eastern Chinese city of Qingdao in Shandong Province is hosting the 14th Asia Media Summit 2017 which is being attended by media delegations from Asian countries, including Iran.

Head of Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting Abdolali Ali-Askari led the Iranian delegation to the event, which was held on Tuesday.

The Chinese capital of Beijing hosted another edition of the meeting in 2010, in which more than 600 representatives from Asian media participated.

The program, themed 'Leading Media, World Development', deals with ways to overcome international and regional challenges such as the environment, natural resources, climate change and economics.

In his address on the first day of the summit, Ali-Askari spoke about issues such as the threat of terrorism and the role of media in informing societies about the danger.

He added that the media's role today is to promote peace, friendship, and ethics as well as to fight religion-phobia to provide the world with societies independent of color, race and bias.

The head of the Iranian delegation further noted that Internet is a super-media and an international forum that has done away with borders between countries to change almost everything in culture, politics, economics and lifestyle.

Ali-Askari also discussed cooperation with the head of China's state broadcaster, CCTV, before the summit.

The 14th Asia Media Summit started on June 6 and will end on June 8.
