The Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance imposed the new ban to counter a "Western cultural onslaught," said Mohammad Selgi, head of book publishing at the ministry.
Selgi did not say what foreign presidents' names would be banned--nor did he explain what the basis was for censoring the names of some foreign presidents and allowing others to be mentioned in books.
According to BBC Persian, Selgi also spoke out against books on psychology that cite masturbation as a treatment method.
