The Ministry of Culture said that it would immediately examine other requests by foreign media outlets for temporary and permanent work permits in the Islamic Republic.

Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance says it has issued work permits for 110 foreign media outlets that have no offices in the country.

On Sunday, the ministry announced that 110 foreign media have been provided with temporary work permits since the beginning of the current Iranian calendar year (started on March 21).

The ministry added that 141 international media already have active offices in Iran.

In an address on the occasion of National Reporter’s Day, Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Ali Jannati pointed to the important role of media in today’s world, stressing that Tehran should employ the power of media to improve its global image, which has been unfairly tarnished over the past ten years.

The ministry also stated that it would immediately examine other requests by foreign media outlets for temporary and permanent work permits in the Islamic Republic.
