TEHRAN – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s official website has stopped using the Telegram messaging app in a show of support for domestic equivalents in line with national interests.

The decision comes “in line with safeguarding national interests and breaking up the monopoly of the Telegram messaging app,” read the last message on khamenei.ir’s Telegram channel.

The Foreign Ministry has also announced that it had created a channel in Soroush domestic messaging app, similar to its Telegram channel, to expand its availability on the internet.
