Dissemination of information can not be restricted: Rafsanjani

TEHRAN, Oct. 24 (Mehr News Agency) - Expediency Council Chairman Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani has said in modern day the free flow of information can not be contained as the means of communication are mushrooming.

"Today is the era of explosion of information and the flow of information can not be restricted. The groundwork should be laid in a way that people can use these tools (means of communication) appropriately in order to find the right path," Rafsanjani said during a meeting with a number of university students and graduates on Sunday.

In the modern world if some groups want to impose their viewpoints on other people they will face people's resistance, he noted.

Rafsanjani also said the Iranian youth will have a bright future, since their awareness toward the issues facing the country is growing, he said.

"The future is very bright, because of the growth of the society's awareness and the existence of cultured and educated people, although we may face some problems in the path (to success)," he stated.

Eleswhere in his remarks, Rafsanjani commented on the domestic and foreign polices that the Iranian government should adopt.

In the area of foreign policy, officials should seek interaction with other nations while preserving the Islamic system's principles, he said.

The domestic policies should also be based on people's vote and freedoms set out in the Constitution, he explained.
