TEHRAN – The seventh session of the General Assembly of the Islamic Radio and Television Union was inaugurated Sunday at the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) International Conference Hall.
 
Speaking at the ceremony, President Hassan Rouhani said that a new brand of cultural products needs to be established in the Islamic countries.
 
“This brand will assure parents of the content of the products, and will contain guidance materials for their children,” he added.
 
Today is the world of communication, he said, adding, “Any country that can better project its voice to the world, will better establish relations with its people.
 
“The West enjoys new technology in the media world of today and it is essential for us to possess such technology,” he explained.
 
“We need to prepare ourselves for a great cultural battle with the modern countries of today in order to be able to take care of our own younger generation,” he stated, “We must arm ourselves with new technologies, such as cell phones and internet in addition to radio and television, to prepare for this great battle.”
 
The president added that the union can help attract other Islamic media across the world, and help introduce the real image of Islam and promote the Quran and the right path of Prophet Muhammad (S).
 
A total of 220 members of the union from 36 countries are participating in the three-day assembly. The fifth Islamic Film Market is also underway on the sidelines.
 
President Rouhani also visited the market accompanied by the Director of the union Hojjatoleslam Ali Karimian and the presidential office chairman Mohammad Nahavandian.
