Iranian President Ebrahiam Raisi has inaugurated six major telecoms projects as part a drive by his administration to boost the country’s communication infrastructures.

The projects were launched in a ceremony on Wednesday which was attended by Iran's telecoms minister Issa Zarepour.

Iran’s telecoms ministry also said that some 4,000 new Iranian villages with more than 20 households had been connected to the National Information Network, a platform which offers high-speed internet and intranet services in the country.
