As the world faces the ominous phenomenon of war, insecurity and terrorism, media assumes a huge task of promoting peace, friendship, morality and spirituality.

It has the responsibility to “combat any act which seeks to create phobia towards religions.”  It also has to “ceaselessly combat injustice as the root cause of terrorism” in different parts of the world,  Dr Abdolali Ali Askari, President of AIBD General Conference, and President, Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting, said in his welcoming remarks during the opening ceremony of the 14th Asia Media Summit from 6-7 June 2017 in Qingdao, China.
