Iran’s ministry of communication and information technology announced that it is looking at the possibility of ending the restrictions on accessing social networking websites in Iranaafacebookiran342.jpg

.

The ministry issued a statement saying that a special committee is examining the blocking of websites such as Facebook and Twitter and will soon publicize its decision.

The news comes a day after the minister of communication said publicly that there was no plan to allow Iranians to access to Facebook and Twitter. He later announced that his words had been misconstrued.

Access to Facebook and Twitter in Iran is blocked by the government, and Iranian web users can only access them through the use of proxies.

The use of these websites by Iranian President Hassan Rohani and other members of his cabinet has triggered a push toward dropping restrictions against them.
