TEHRAN – Iran’s Minister of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Mohammad-Javad Azari Jahromi said that Iran supplies nearly 70 percent of Iraq’s internet services, Fars News Agency reported.

The northwestern border city Piranshahr is the main hub to transit internet to Iraq, Azari Jahromi said during his trip to Western Azarbaijan Province.
