Iran condemns US double standards on freedom of expression

Tehran, Jun 23 (Prensa Latina) Iran today condemned the United States' double standards regarding freedom of expression by blocking the media in the Islamic Republic and other West Asian countries.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh considered Washington’s defense of free expression hypocritical while blocking broadcasts from Press TV, Al-Alam, Al-Kawthar TV and the Yemeni network Al-Masirah.

In Khatibzadeh’s view, the current US government follows the same line as the previous one.

Those measures confirm, he said, the White House’s intention to silence voices that challenge its interests.

The Iranian government announced that it will file lawsuits through legal channels against those decisions.

The United States cut several portals of the networks belonging to the Radio and Television of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Resistance in Syria, Iraq and Palestine, without giving any explanation.

A US official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed to the Bloomberg portal Washington’s blockade of 36 Iranian sites.

The measure affects the .com and .net domains, so Press TV and Al-Alam can be consulted in the Iranian variant ir.

These two media with broadcasts in English and Arabic are the target of frequent censorship by the United States as a way of limiting opinions and criteria different from those propagated by North American informants.
