Iran on 11 May 2013 gave Reuters news agency permission to reopen its Tehran bureau. The work there was suspended in March 2012 over one of its video reports.

In September 2012, a court found Reuters guilty of propaganda against the regime, and publishing false information in an effort to disturb public opinion. Domestic Iranian and foreign media outlets in the Islamic republic need permission from the culture and Islamic guidance ministry to operate.

The authorities in Iran routinely monitor and restrict the activities of the few journalists working for foreign media in Iran.
