    (ANSAmed) - ROME, JANUARY 21 - The head of public broadcaster Libyan National Channel (LNC), Haitham Kamouka, stressed Thursday its mission to ''reflect all opinions and give voice to the entire Libyan population'. During a meeting in Rome with Conférence Permanente de l'Audiovisuel Méditerranéen (COPEAM) chief Pier Luigi Malesani, Kamouka underscored that the broadcaster's work aimed ''also to improve the country's image. Despite the fact that no Libyan citizen has committed violent crimes outside of the country, the chaos into which we have fallen has created prejudices that reflect - for example - on the strict visa policies that Libyans are subject to in many countries. Our television needs technical support and training from our partners to be able to carry out our duties.'' The two men reiterated the need to restore links - which have been tested by the difficult situation in Libya - between the COPEAM network and the North African broadcaster, one of the founders of the association. Malesani noted the recent training project supported by the Italian foreign ministry, an initiative that brought a group of Libyan journalists to Rome for three weeks for training at Italian state broadcaster RAI and the University of Rome 'La Sapienza'. In reiterating an invitation to the next COPEAM General Assembly, in Corsica from April 7 to 9, Malesani said he was convinced that this would be the ideal context to provide more realistic information on Libya in the presence of all Mediterranean television and radio stations. Malesani said that ''Libyan public television must commit to moving once and for all from a state-run television to a public one for all citizens''. (ANSAmed).
