He pointed out that the freedom of the press should be a ‘responsible’, ‘disciplined’, ‘impartial’ freedom aligned only with the principles of truth and justice.
On their turn, members of the FPA delegation expressed their thanks to the Ministry of Information for inviting them to visit Oman and learn about the stages of its development in various fields. They showed their admiration for the country’s cultural and modern landmarks. They also lauded the growth of Omani media and its refined content.
