The UAE media is playing a crucial role in enhancing national resilience, promoting State efforts to maintain political, social, economic, cultural and religious balance amid regional and international changes and shocks, a local daily newspaper commented. 'The UAE committed itself to the principle of balanced policy in terms of plans, programmes and visions, encouraging key sectors to work as a one coherent team guided by prudent policy towards development and progress,' wrote Al Watan in its daily editorial titled ' Role of Media in Preserving National Security'. 'Media is playing a positive role in promoting and fostering the spirit of inter-sectoral cooperation, solidarity and harmony,' the paper remarked, adding that UAE media had stayed on the course of its longstanding, authentic values, keeping itself away from changing values and casual exciting and seditious reporting. This line, the Arabic daily paper added, had made the UAE media more credible and responsible. 'These two valuable values define the mission of media in any society and its contribution to efforts aimed at building that society on sound, firm and vibrant pillars. The UAE media has the insight to distinct between the good and bad, truth and falsehood and thrill and responsibility.' The paper noted that the UAE national media had stood firm and bravely to devastating ideas which seek to undermine security and stability, and twist and distort the facts. 'The UAE media rhetoric to allegations and plots against the country by few foreign illusionists was characterised with reason, logic and objectivity building on credible facts and bright achievements on the ground of reality,' Al Watan concluded.
