D-8 plans to launch news network
D-8 Secretary-General, Seyed Ali Mohammad Mousavi visited the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) headquarter in Tehran on 27 November 2013. In a meeting with Mr. Mohammad Khodadi, President of IRNA, Dr. Mousavi stated that D-8 has planned to set up a news network and it hopes to accomplish this plan before the next D-8 Summit in 2014. “Before IRNA, I have exchanged fruitful discussions with AA, ANTARA, and MENA on the issue of increasing the visibility and leverage of the Organization through a closer cooperation among D-8 news agencies. During my meeting with Director-Generals of these agencies, we came to this conclusion together with other news agencies from Member Countries, that we can shape a closer cooperation among D-8 countries”, he added.
Mr. Khodadi expressed that IRNA is ready to help D-8 to launch the news network and to render services and assist D-8 Secretariat to accomplish establishing such network. “Thanks to its invaluable experiences, IRNA could provide D-8 Secretariat with good services”, he said.

Secretary-General Mousavi thanked Mr. Khodadi for his views and contribution to the news agencies cooperation process. He underlined that it is an important aspect for D-8’s visibility and reflects the implementations and news material sharing among the member agencies. “As I already pointed out, as Secretariat, we expect our Member Countries’ contributions to cover D-8 activities and events more often. I believe by setting up such network, we will increase the visibility of the Organization and also promote cooperation among the Member Countries”, he concluded.
