Iran licence is not over

Etisalat said the cancellation of its Iran mobile licence isn't final and the company may pursue the issue.

"We did not reach a solution with our partner that is why we did not go to the next step," said chairman Mohammed Hasan Omran. "There are some discussions further on; we may come back."

Etisalat, said on May 11 that Iran's telecom regulator told it that it was no longer the winner of the country's third mobile licence.
