شرکت Royal Mail انگلیس طی بیانیه ای اعلام کرده که ارسال مراسلات وبسته ها به مقصد ایران را متوقف نموده است. پیگیری انجام شده نشان دادکه وزارت خارجه و شرکت پست انگلیس خود از بیانیه این شرکت خدمات رسانی شوکه شده اند. آنها قول داده اندکه باجدیت بدنبال اصلاح فوری این تصمیم هستند.— Hamid Baeidinejad (@baeidinejad) April 12, 2019
In an unprecedented move, Royal Mail issued a statement that posting parcels to Iran has been ceased as of Thursday. UK government ceded its shares in the company to the private sector in 2015 and bears no responsibility against the decisions made by the privatised Royal Mail. 101/211
