21-Jan-2009 (one comment)

TEHRAN (AFP) — Iran on Wednesday warned the BBC Tehran bureau against contributing to the network's newly-launched Farsi-language television channel, which is banned from operating in Iran, Fars news agency reported."BBC English channel will be confronted if it abuses its legal rights by producing reports for BBC Persian and we are continually on watch for that," Culture Minister Mohammad Hossein Saffar Harandi said. "This Persian channel is not planned with good intentions and they reflect the same issues differently in Persian and English services," said Harandi, whose ministry is in charge of licensing and monitoring foreign media.
