A new Iranian radio station has been established in Holland, aiming at the Iranian youth, the London-based daily A-Sharq Al-Awsat reports.

Radio Zamaniya aims to become the voice of the Iranian youth, according to a statement issued by Radio Holland. The new station will not avoid dealing with contentious issues such as sex and women's rights, added the statement.

"The Iranian youth is thirsty for knowledge and is not satisfied with the information provided to him by the one-sided point of view presented by the Iranian media," said Bantiya Moudiri, an employee at Radio Zamaniya.
