Ionic solids conduct electricity in molten state but not in solid state. Explain.

In case of ionic solids , the ions are the units for the conduction of electricity. when they are in solid state the ions are bound to each other by strong electrostatic forces of attraction . But in the molten form the ions are free to move under the applied electric field thus they can conduct the electricity in molten form.
