The Decree No 1 has clear requirements to the media's covering measures on promoting state security and discipline.
The Minister of Information of the Republic of Belarus Liliya Ananich told at the sitting of Mogilev region executive committee.
"The Decree also promotes responsibility of the media, as far as it clearly describes the tasks to be undertaken by the media.
All the decisions and actions that specify the strategy of development of the major branches of economy must be worked out taking into account practical experience of the MES, MIA, and other agencies involved.
The media must mould public opinion reminding people about their duty to keep order in our Belarusian homeland", Liliya Ananich remarked.
The Minister stressed the need of introducing the media's accountability on their actions undertaken to promote state security and discipline.
"A certain event must be both covered and analysed by the media.
Mass media must create clear attitudes of citizens towards their environment, including the matters of crime prevention.
To meet this end the media, including the Internet, as well as executive committees and other bodies involved must worked tied together", the Minister summed up.
