In a dialogue with the newly formed board of the AJA’s 8th edition during its meeting on Wednesday, Shaikh Mohammed expressed his support for the freedom of the Press but demanded, at the same time, media men to commit themselves to integrity, objectivity and impartiality, saying they should strive to spread the truth, which contributes to facilitate change and development in Arab communities.

Shaikh Mohammed said he was in favour of a responsible freedom of the Press away from any personal interests and purposes.
