A statement on strengthening media cooperation was issued during the “2020 European Media Partners Cooperation Online Forum” on Thursday. It calls on Chinese and European media to fulfill their responsibilities as public information disseminators and jointly help the international community gather strength to overcome the pandemic.

The forum was held by the China Media Group (CMG), with 28 delegates from 25 organizations in 16 European countries and delegates from CMG in attendance. The content of the statement is as follows:

Firstly, we believe that in the face of the current global public health challenges, the media plays a key and invaluable role in distributing tangible and scientifically-proven information and knowledge, as well as sharing experiences, building consensus, and clarifying fallacies. We should act as responsible disseminators of public information and help the international community to build stronger synergy.

Secondly, we actively promote the development of strategic dialogues and media communications between China and Europe, uniting Chinese and European media peers through practical actions, deepening consensus, strengthening collaboration, and continuing to work in partnership to deal with existing and possible future challenges.

Thirdly, we propose the establishment of a “China-Europe Media Partnership” forum held alternately between China and partner member states to further promote media cooperation between the two parties.

This statement aims to convey the significance of media cooperation between China and Europe and to acknowledge the long-term friendship between both sides.

CGTN Welcomes Ofcom’s Recognition of its Right to Broadcast in UK

China Global Television Network (CGTN) on Saturday welcomed the acknowledgement of the British media regulator that CGTN’s right to broadcast in Europe falls under French jurisdiction, which paves the way for its return to broadcasting in the UK after being taken off the air there two months ago.

The Office of Communications (Ofcom) of the United Kingdom on Friday said that it recognized that CGTN’s operations in Europe are in French jurisdiction, according to the Financial Times, which under the European Convention on Transfrontier Television, to which the UK is a signatory, allows it to resume airing programs in the country.

CGTN said on Saturday it is in contact with its broadcast licensee to verify the relevant information.

“We applaud and welcome the UK regulatory authorities’ return to objectivity and impartiality,” said CGTN via a spokesperson.

“As a professional international media organization, CGTN reports the world in an objective, fair and balanced manner and promote exchanges among people of all countries and regions. CGTN always respects and abides by the laws and regulations of the countries and regions where we operate,” added the spokesperson.

On February 4, 2021, Ofcom pulled CGTN off British airwaves after 18 years of services in the country, following an investigation into the broadcasting license of the outlet. CGTN has maintained that it “complies with the laws and regulations of every country” and expressed disappointment in the ruling that was “based on the so-called political nature of CGTN and related Chinese media organizations.”
