The American legislator called the “search path”, which will provide people “access to facts”
In an interview with the Armenian service of “voice of America” the Chairman of foreign policy Committee of the house of representatives ed Royce commented on the decision of the Russian authorities to assign the status of foreign agents working in Russia, “Voice of America” and “Radio Liberty”.
“I believe that the free flow of information is very important, people should have access to the facts, – said Royce. We believe that the “Voice of America” has the right to be heard.”
Congressman urged to “look for ways” that give people “the facts” and allow the media to present different points of view, especially in those countries where governments limit the coverage of different opinions.
On Friday also it became known that the Committee that controls access to television and radio journalists in the U.S. Congress, responded to the request of the Russian TV channel RT about why the Japanese public TV channel NHK, being a “foreign agent” that keeps in contrast to the Russian media company, accredited by the Congress of the United States?
The Committee stated that after further inspection it was found that indeed, NHK did not register as a “foreign agent”.
We will remind that earlier the Committee that controls access to television and radio journalists in the Congress, withdrew the accreditation of the broadcaster RT, after she fulfilled the requirement of the US Department of justice registered as “foreign agent”.
