IRIB world service, RT sign MoU to boost cooperation
The MoU was signed in Tehran on Monday during a meeting between the CEO of the IRIB’s World Service Peyman Jebelli and RT’s Managing Director Alexey Nikolov.
During the meeting, Jebelli lauded RT for its accurate and brave reporting, saying, “When we look at the Russia Today, we see that it is not only a very powerful and a very different voice among the big media of the world, but we also consider it an accurate and brave voice confronting mainstream Western media.”
“I think the bravery of Russia Today and its effectiveness among the world media is the result of the new and different role of Russia in the world and the region and I think this powerful movement of your organization is completing the new role of Russia in the world,” he added.
The CEO of the IRIB’s World Service then noted that the RT media stream has turned into a very creative discourse among the world media, adding that RT’s progress was owed to the leadership role and support of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
