MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moscow and Tehran will hold talks on the resumption of the Russian search engine Yandex in Iran, whose ban can be removed before the end of the year, Iranian Minister of Communication Mahmoud Vaezi said Wednesday.
"Four different committees will be set up after the meeting I had, and those which my deputies and delegation [members] have had. They will organize everything and will cover many issues, including Yandex," Vaezi said.
He added that "tomorrow, during a visit to the Yandex office this issue will also be discussed" and expressed his hope that Yandex will be operational in Iran by the end of the year.
In March, media reported that the Yandex search engine has come under lock in Iran.
