Iranian television channel to open office in Cuba
Published on September 14, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- Iran’s television channel Hispantv, the first Spanish information and entertainment channel in the Middle East, will soon open an office in Cuba, Omar Olazabal, vice-president of the Cuban Radio and Television Institute, announced on Thursday in Havana.

During the signing of an agreement that will strengthen cooperation between Iran and the Caribbean island in radio and television, Olazabal said that the project has been given a green light and that the correspondent office will operate with Cuban staff.

The agreement was signed during the Cuba 2013 Radio and Television Festival underway at Havana’s Convention Center, which was due to wind up on Friday. It will serve to renew exchanges between the two nations in that sphere.

We can offer consultancy, which will include aspects of dubbing and techniques, explained the Cuban executive.

Iran’s ambassador to Havana, Ali Chegeni, insisted on the need to face the hegemony of information transmitting companies, by way of constant work in favour of truth and joint work between nations.

Hispantv, based on Teheran, began to broadcast on December 2011, with the purpose of strengthening cultural bonds with Spanish speaking countries, and includes a variety of programs, along with slots on political, social and economic issues.

Its a front for something, when I have given it more thought I will give you my views.

It may just be as simple as scum attracts scum.
