World Press Freedom Day Round Table Discussion

img_3996-a On the occasion of World Press Freedom Day (WPFD) PAS Luxembourg organized a round table discussion between Ambassador McKean, three Iraqi journalists seeking asylum in Luxembourg, local journalists and members of the Luxembourg Youth Parliament. With the sudden influx of refugees in Luxembourg (+/- 3,000 to date with another 1,000 expected), PAS got to know three Iraqi journalists who aimg_3961-accepted our invitation as special guests for WPFD. This event was an opportunity for Ambassador McKean to meet with local journalists for the first time since his arrival three weeks ago and also emphasized the U.S. policy regarding freedom of speech and press. PAS traditionally organizes an event on WPFD, so it’s also an occasion to get
together with our best contacts and get to know new journalists.
