The Iraqi Ministry of Communications announced that it would remove the blocking of Telegram. The department said the courier’s representatives agreed to cooperate with the country’s authorities.

Iraqi authorities to remove blocking of Telegram

According to a statement from the Iraqi Ministry of Communications, the authorities will lift the blockade on August 13 at the direction of the country’s prime minister. The agency highlights that Telegram representatives “expressed their full willingness to contact the competent authorities.”

Speaking to Reuters, a company spokesperson said that “Telegram’s user agreement prohibits the posting of personal data without consent, and moderators often remove such content.”

The interlocutor of the agency confirmed that the messenger had already blocked several channels that disseminated personal data of Iraqi citizens.

“However, we can also confirm that no Telegram user data has been requested or shared with third parties,” a company spokesperson said.

Last week, the Iraqi Ministry of Communications restricted access to Telegram in the country. The department reported that some Telegram channels distributed “large amounts of personal data” of the country’s citizens, and the messenger’s address did not respond to a request by authorities to block the channels.
