First deputy parliament speaker Hassan al-Kaabi has affirmed adopting proposals to support the independent paper-based newspapers.

He also discussed with Moaid al-Lami, president of the Federation of Journalists of Iraq, and the chief editors of the newspapers the establishment of a fund to support press inside the country.

The meeting discussed ways for the parliament to support media organizations in general and paper based newspapers in particular, a statement by Kaabi's office said.
