WAM Manama, Feb 7th, 2013 (WAM) -- The Information Affairs Authority (IAA) in Bahrain decided to resume broadcasting BRTV channels on the (Arab Communications Satellite) ARABSAT Corporation starting from today, which reflects the deep-rooted solid historic mutual cooperation relations between the Kingdom of Bahrain and ARABSAT within the Arab League.
This came during a meeting between Minister of State for Information Affairs cum Government's official spokesperson, Samira bin Rajab, and a delegation led by ARABSAT board chairman Fareed Yusuf Khashoggi, CEO engineer Khalid Ahmed Bal-Khyoor.
According to Bahrain News Agency (BNA), the Minister welcomed the delegation and expressed her appreciation for their visit intended to boost mutual cooperation and understanding between the IAA and ARABSAT since 1976.
The two sides stressed the significance of boosting bilateral cooperation to serve mutual interest as part of achieving the objectives of the Arab League Charter, the Arab Media Ethics Charter and the principles which organize radio and TV transmission and reception in order to safeguard Arab identity, civilization, credibility, subjectivism of media content and ensuring security and stability of Arab countries and supporting their developmental and democratic accomplishments.
Both sides agreed during the meeting to continue to uplift the radio and TV services and ARABSAT telecommunications up to highest international technical and professional standards and to boost its competitive edge and expand it geographically now that the Kingdom of Bahrain and other sisterly GCC countries as co-founders of ARABSAT are the largest shareholders at 66% of ARABSAT's capital.
