TEHERAN, August 10,/ITAR-TASS/. Britain’s BBC will be denied accreditation to resume its work in Iran, IRNA news agency said on Sunday.
Iran’s Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Ali Janati told a news conference on Sunday that BBC was violating the principle of professional neutrality in its news coverage. Apart from that, its journalists had reportedly contacted with “elements that are in opposition to the Iranian government,” he said.
“At the behest of Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office, BBC is offering public relations services for Western government,” the Iranian minister said, adding that the corporation was misleading public opinion in world countries by concealing blatant violations of human rights by Western governments. “It distorts reality in its materials and pictures Western society as a paradise in what concerns human rights,” he said.
