President: National internet will be provided in parallel with foreign internet

IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday that national internet will be provided in parallel with foreign internet and that the improvement does not mean cut-off of foreign internet.

The government wants people to enjoy strong domestic internet network along with the foreign internet, the president said at the cabinet session held in Tehran on Wednesday morning.

President Rouhani said that petrol price hike which recently led to unrest in Iranian cities, was successful to help the low income people.

The petrol price rise helped lower consumption of fuel and that Iran can increase export of petrol, the president added.
