CG Fagin discussed virtually the status of media freedom in the IKR with Metro Center Coordinator Rahman Ghareeb. They spoke about the importance of authorities upholding, respecting, and adhering to the IKR Press Law and Access to Information Law, which collectively grant journalists access to information and the right to report without fear of censorship, injury and intimidation. The U. S. remains committed to supporting freedom of the press in the IKR. To promote a more transparent and representative society, journalists must be granted the ability to operate freely, independently, regardless of political affiliations and beliefs. Freedom of the press is an important pillar for any democratic society.
