Iran daily to resume publication as of Saturday

Tehran, Oct 26, IRNA-The Persian-language morning daily, Iran, will resume publication on Saturday.

The new managing director of Iran Cultural and Press Institute (ICPI) Kaveh Eshtehardi told IRNA on Wednesday that no major change will take place in the daily.

"However, in some respects, a few minor changes may appear in the trend of its coverage depending on the daily's approach.

"Iran belongs to the Iranian nation. It is a symbol of unity and solidarity among various Iranian tribes," he added.

Eshtehardi hoped that the daily would give the required momentum to the country's administrative system through its honest and courageous approach.

"We will attempt to brief the readers on the mottos and ideals of the 9th government through proper dissemination of information," he added.

He hoped that `Iran' will serve as a bridge between the people and government by giving coverage to actual news.

The managing director of the daily said that the staff will be the same, adding that just five people, including editors and reporters, have been replaced.

Iran was closed down by the Press Supervisory Board on May 23 after publishing a satirical cartoon which angered the Azari people.

The ban on the daily, issued by Bench 1060 of Tehran General Court was lifted on September 27.

Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Mohammad Hossein Saffar Harandi appointed Kaveh Eshtehardi to the post of ICPI caretaker on September 27.

ICPI is affiliated to the Islamic Republic News Agency.
