The Fourth Annual Meeting of IBRAF is Canceled
Permanent Secretariat of OIC Broadcasting Regulatory Authorities Forum (IBRAF) presents its compliments to the Regulatory Authorities (or the governmental bodies with similar functions) in all OIC member states, in particular 33 confirmed participants from 15 OIC states, excluding Iran, and 2 delegations from international organizations and with reference to its previous notes (IBRAF/Info.2014.09/01 and the e-mail with invitation letter, agenda and registration form) dated on23 October 2014 on convening of IBRAF 4th Annual Meeting on 9-10 December 2014 in Tehran, Iran, informs them that the said meeting has been CANCELED due to the “unhealthy communication” with the hosting institution, Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB). It is extremely disappointing to be unable to hold the 4th Annual Meeting in Tehran, Iran with 18 delegations, considering the fact that the 1st Annual Meeting was held in Istanbul, Turkey with 12 delegations, 2nd Annual Meeting in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with 16 delegations and 3rd Annual Meeting in Marrakech, Morocco with 15 delegations.
Permanent Secretariat of OIC Broadcasting Regulatory Authorities Forum (IBRAF) avails itself of this opportunity to renew to the Regulatory Authorities (or the governmental body with similar functions) in all OIC member states the assurance of its highest consideration.
