Iranian Foreign Ministry comments Euronews broadcasting in Persian
It is wrong for the newly opened Euronews Persian service to try and interfere with Iran's internal affairs, the Iranian Foreign Ministry was quoted as saying on IRINN's official Web site.
"If the Persian-speaking channels are doing their jobs maintaining the dignity of the journalism profession, we positively view such initiatives. But if they mislead people by making wrong reports, we cannot agree with this decision," Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Mehmanparast said.
Last week Euronews announced that it has won a European Commission tender allowing the channel a twenty-four-hour broadcasting in Persian.
