Russia, Moscow, Dec. 9 / Trend 's special correspondent I. Bragina /

Post-Soviet media outlets must stop to think about their differences and emphasize common features to solve joint problems, Minister of Communications and Mass Media Igor Shchegolev said.

"We are likely to unite in media sphere," he said during at the European and Asian Media Forum.

Minister said that the similarities between post-Soviet media outlets were evident in 1990. They focused on differences to emphasize their individuality.

"Right now, all are likely to understand that we have a lot in common. There are many different ways. Now, it is possible to avoid these differences easily and think over the media's challenges, including the industry," Shchegolev said.

Minister said the media must not go in the wake of social organizations and other non-professional media. Their news must be approved and of good quality.

He said that there is so much information that the boundaries between amateur and professionals are erased.

"As a representative of the profile ministry, I can say that, from our point of view, a chance for media to survive is not to lower the bar, and give high-quality, approved information", Shchegolev said.

The ability to rapidly find accurate information on the maximum number of interesting audience is so crucial factor for the media, minister said.

The European and Asian Media Forum organized by RIA Novosti and held in Moscow brought together heads of famous media outlets from the CIS and Baltic states, politicians and public figures. Over 150 of the world's top media managers participate in it.

Trend Agency is represented by General Director Ilgar Huseynov in the forum.

The forum envisages the opportunity for journalists to communicate broadly with Russian counterparts, heads of Russian state organizations, well-known politicians and public figures.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and press-secretary of the government Dmitry Peskov greeted the participants of the event.
