Abdul Samad, Kubis discuss role of media facing crises



Information Minister, Manal Abdul Samad Najd, on Monday welcomed at her ministerial office with UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Jan Kubis, with whom she discussed the positive role that the media could play in confronting the prevailing crises and challenges.

Kubis confirmed herein keenness on preserving the rights of journalists to be able to transparently purvey the image on the ground away from political pressure or any sort of personal threats.

"The United Nations' role in Lebanon is not limited to supervision, as it has been endeavoring to push matters to a better end whilst steering clear from intervening in the country's internal politics," Kubis added.
