A member of Iran’s nuclear negotiating team, Hamid Baeedinejad, on Sunday appreciated Iranian reporters for taking the initiative in reporting the news on the nuclear talks.
He said that Iranian reporters carried their duty skillfully in a way that foreign news corporations preferred to quote Iranian news agencies in doing their job.
The way Iranian reporters and news agencies gave coverage to the nuclear talks in Vienna was unique in its kind, he said.
In all cases the West was the source of all news items, but this time the Iranian reporters and news agencies took the lead and became the source for the Western news agencies, he said.
In most cases, the Western news agencies referred to the news covered by the Iranian news agencies, he said, adding this should be regarded as a significant achievement proving that the Western media can no longer have the upper hand in this regard.
To maintain the trust the Western sources have built in the Iranian news centers for reflecting the news and events, the media people should exercise vigilance and continue such a trend so that their news can be referred to as an accredited source, he said.
