Iraqi difference s on Saudi MBC TV channel

Baghdad/ Iraq TradeLink: The declaration to make a special TV station by the Saudi MBC directed to
the Iraqi public resulted in great differences among politicians here.

Pro-Iran elements rejected the project as a whole and regarded it as “a Saudi attempt to interfere in Iraqi affairs”.

Others said that the media is open in the world, pointing that Iraq needs the Arab media to be present in Arab affairs and increase attention to Iraqi politics.

The Iraqi public opinion is the only who can judge, observers stated.

The official release of the channel will be on  17 February, 2018.
