SEOUL, November 16. /TASS/. Stepping up of activities of the Organization of Asia-Pacific News Agencies (OANA) is among the priorities of the 39th OANA Executive Board meeting in Seoul, OANA President and TASS Director General Sergey Mikhailov said at the opening ceremony on Monday.
"We are determined to step up OANA activities and enhance its role as the main inter-state mass media association in the Asia-Pacific region and to build up ties with other regional media organizations," Mikhailov said. "In part, we are about to sign a memorandum of cooperation with the Federation of Arab News Agencies (FANA). We have restored cooperation with the Alliance of Mediterranean News Agencies (AMAN). Also, we have been establishing contacts with the European Alliance of News Agencies (EANA) and the Latin American Union of News Agencies. We do hope it will be mutually beneficial and fruitful cooperation," said the OANA president.
The OANA Executive Board 39th meeting is held with support of the Yonhap news agency in its Seoul headquarters from November 16 to 17. At the OANA General Assembly in Moscow in September 2013, the organization’s presidency was handed over to TASS for three years.
