ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said that a decision has been taken to unblock youtube website within 24 hours following ‘a great demand’.
In a message tweeted on Friday, Rehman Malik said that he chaired a high-level meeting with all stakeholders on the Youtube issue.
He said that notification in this regard is likely to be issued today.
Malik further said that those who had been pressing him to unblock the site should be happy now.
