FNA Chief Deplores Smear Campaign against Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- Fars News Agency Managing-Director Seyed Nezamoddin Moussavi said western and Arab states have waged a media war on Syria and are lying about the country, adding that FNA feels duty-bound to inform the world of the realities on the ground in the Muslim country.



Speaking at a meeting with Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Meqdad in Damascus, Moussavi said Fars News Agency is trying to reflect the realities on the ground in Syria and disclose the untruthful reports released by the media of the West and reactionary Arab states about Syria.

"The main offensive launched against Syria is a media war. The reports released by the Al Jazeera, Al Arabiya, CNN and BBC against Syria are based on lies and the way to fight it back is certainly (the use of) the media," Moussavi said, adding that FNA is prepared to help Damascus to confront the current media war on Syria.

Meqdad, for his part, said Iran and Syria have common and strategic goals and their medias hold a transparent and specific stance on the resistance front in the region.

Moussavi visited Damascus this week to inaugurate FNA bureau in Damascus.

He also met with high-ranking Syrian officials, including the country's parliament speaker and information minister, during his stay in the Syrian capital.

On Friday, the FNA managing-director signed a memorandum of understanding with head of the Syrian news agency (SANA) on mutual cooperation.

On Wednesday, Moussavi discussed the current developments in Syria in a meeting with Iran's Envoy to Syria Mohammad Reza Sheibani in Damascus.
