Iran Bans Advertising American products

Iranian television announced that the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, which keeps tabs on the press, issued instructions to stop publicizing American products, according to the Arabic daily, A-Sharq Al-Awsat, published in London. The Ministry added that the rationale for the decision was “to ensure consistency in advertising in the country.”

A senior official commented that “there are a number of Arab and Muslim states boycotting American products because of its policies in the Middle East. The point of our ban is to join the ranks of those states.” The same official announced that the Spiritual Leader, Ali Khamena’i offers his full support.
