He said that the spokesperson is a closest colleague to the decision-maker, so we have to find out the real information to provide to the people. The Information Minister added that the spokesperson can’t hinder the reporters to speak out, but we have to explain them about the real thing, but in some case the truth can’t reveal to them too. He also emphasized that the spokesperson has to work around the clock and seven day per week to dig out or find out news.
The second training course for the spokespersons from the government ministries and institutions as well as from provinces and municipality across the countries will be held from July 13 to 17.
