FNA Managing Director Urges Investment in Media for Soft Warfare
TEHRAN (FNA)- Fars News Agency Managing Director Hamid Reza Moqaddamfar on Monday stressed the importance of policy-making and investment in media for strengthening the country's power in soft warfare.
"Media capacity for soft warfare can be truly utilized through proper investment and policy-making," Moqaddamfar said.
He underlined the necessity for deeper and closer link between Basij (volunteer) forces and Iranian media, given the fact that Basij has been tasked with confrontation against soft threats posed by enemies to Iran.
"In soft warfare, media is the main and the most important weapon, soldier and equipment. If Basij forces want to play an effective role in fields of soft warfare, they should close link with the media," Moqaddamfar reiterated.
In February, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Commander Mohammad Ali Jafari said that Basij (volunteer) forces have been assigned by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei to fight the threat of soft regime change plans against the Islamic Republic.
