TEHRAN (IRNA)–Iran’s cultural counselor in Yerevan has lodged a protest to the Armenian TV for broadcasting the film ‘300’ which distorts Iran’s history.
Mohammad Reza Shakiba in a meeting with the deputy head of the Armenian TV Network H2, Karen Hacopian, expressed concern over airing the film.
Armenian officials always insist on the two countries’ common history and friendly ties and have extensive plans for future, he said, noting that broadcasting such a film can harm friendship and cooperation between the two sides.
Hacopian, for his part, said that the airing the film is not worrisome pointing out that the Armenian people and government are quite keen on Iran’s friendship. He noted that Iran has been a friend of Armenia’since ancient times.
"The film is not acceptable for Armenian TV," he said, noting that sometimes distributors impose their films on buyers.
