Iran reacts to US blocking Iranian websites

New York, IRNA – An Iranian official at the United Nations said that Washington’s seizing Iranian websites is illegal and stressed that the issue will be pursued through legal channels.

Rejecting the bullying measure, the official told IRNA that the move is an instance of limiting freedom of expression.

The US Justice Department has seized 33 Iranian websites used by the Iranian Islamic Radio and Television Union (IRTVU) and three websites of Kata'ib Hezbollah, claiming that they have violated US sanctions.

PressTV, Al-Alam News Network, and Almasirah are among the seized websites, the two ones having coame back online using Iranian domain: alalam.ir and presstv.ir.

Ned Price, the spokesman for the United States Department of State, told reporters that he has nothing to say about the issue, but the Department of Justice may present some information on that.
