The meeting was held in the holy shrine of the Commander of the Faithful Ali Ibn AbiTalib (peace be upon both of them), where the officials and representatives of the departments of media, intellectuals and cultural affairs and radio stations in the holy shrines, have discussed the ways to develop media support and the mechanisms for the enhancement of this vital and important aspect.

We also discussed in the meeting the media of the popular mobilization and how to promote its Radio in Samarra and issuing publications to support the popular mobilization and that deal with all subjects related to them. The meeting was productive as we came out with the establishment of the radio of the holy city of Samarra, which will be broadcasted from Samarra in cooperation with the holy shrine of Imams Askariyayn (peace be upon both of them), and also we agreed to set up a location for this media board in the holy city of Karbala."
As for the Media official of the holy shrine of Imam Ali (peace be upon him) Mr.Faeq Al-Shammari, he stated: "During this meeting we have discussed a number of topics dealing with the importance of the holy shrine in Iraq, as these giant institutions have a significant impact and influential role especially in its contribution in the support of the military operations to flush out the terrorist groups from the Iraqi cities by our fighting forces in response to the call of the religious authority. We also agreed on activating this role and uniting the efforts to support the Jihad cause, by launching a radio station in the holy city of Samarra, and a joint website, news agency and magazine with this name, we also agreed to hold the next meeting inthe holy city of Karbala."
