Support Our Future Leaders

The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Thank you!

Lebanese President Aoun Meets Counterpart Putin In Moscow

Lebanese President Aoun Meets Counterpart Putin In Moscow

Lebanese President Michel Aoun has met with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, in Moscow, where the two discussed ways to repatriate about one million Syrian refugees currently living in Lebanon. The two emphasized the need to “resolve [the Syrian] dispute through political and diplomatic means,” which they said would be dependent on “creating favorable conditions in Syria, including social and economic conditions, through post-conflict reconstruction.” They also slammed US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Israeli sovereignty over parts of the Golan Heights captured from Syria in the 1967 war. Jerusalem formally annexed the territory in 1981 in a move uniformly rejected by the international community. Aoun was accompanied on his trip by Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil, who last Friday held meetings with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Beirut. The top US diplomat slammed Hizbullah – an Aoun ally – and its subservience to Iran, while stressing that “the Lebanese people face a choice: bravely move forward as an independent and proud nation or allow the dark ambitions of Iran and Hizbullah to dictate your future.” Some analysts believe that Russia is attempting to supplant American influence in Lebanon after becoming the de facto power broker in neighboring Syria.
