Jarrah meets director of Germany’s Deutsche Welle

Minister of Information, Jamal Jarrah, on Thursday welcomed at his ministerial office the director of the Arabic-language department of Germany’s international news channel “Deutsche Welle”, Mr. Mohammad Ibrahim.

Ibrahim briefed Jarrah on his news channels’ desire to open a regional office in Beirut to cover Arab news as a whole.

“This is very important to us, first, in our capacity as Lebanese, second, because Lebanon is restoring its international position and the respect of foreign countries which deem it a platform to express freedom of opinion and expression,” Ibrahim added.

“His Excellency has promised to support us, as he always supports the development of the media sector and every initiative that helps boost the image of media and its rights,” he added.
