DAMASCUS, (SANA) – A delegation of the Iraqi Arab Journalism Association for Supporting Syria visited on Saturday the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) and inspected the work situation and its role in defying the media war launched against Syria.
SANA Director-General, Ahmad Dawa, pointed out that the war launched against Syria is aimed at undermining the Arab national spirit of Arab citizens in a systematic way to keep the Arab countries weak with no independent political decision.
The Director-General briefed the delegation on the work situation at the Agency, pointing out that the agency seeks to provide accurate and detailed information and to convey facts, while several other media outlets have abandoned all professional standards of journalism.
The Iraqi delegation stressed the support of the Iraqi people to the Syrian people, noting that Syria is being targeted today because of its national stances which support the resistance.
They stressed that Syria’s victory over its enemies is inevitable thanks to the steadfastness of the Syrian Arab Army.
The delegation noted that the association is working to launch a newspaper titled “the Mother of Arabism” dedicated to the Syrian issue, hailing the steadfastness of the Syrian people.
