Silk Dragon Takes Persian Road

He came, he saw, and he pocketed all the deals that matter.  Chinese President Xi Jinping’s tour of Southwest Asia – Saudi Arabia, Iran and Egypt – could easily be sold anywhere as your typical Chinese-style win-win...

Iran and «Economy of Resistance» Strategy

The international sanctions against Iran have been lifted. President Hassan Rouhani believes that Iran is opening a new chapter in its relations with the world. By adopting the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which will ensure the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear programme, Tehran has once again become a fully-fledged member of international life, having reserved the right to the ‘peaceful atom’. President Rouhani has called the nuclear deal a «golden page» in Iran’s history. However, the lifting of sanctions has not resulted in any particular rejoicing in Tehran...

What Will Iran Remember Most About 2015?

Iranians will celebrate their new year on March 20, 2016. That country will close out the old year with scheduled parliamentary elections on Feb. 26, 2016. At the same time, elections will be held for the Assembly of Experts, one of the country’s most important political bodies, consisting of 86 spokesmen for Iran’s clergy and with the power to appoint the country’s Supreme Leader. In the upcoming elections Iranians will shape their future for many years to come, and they will be doing so in a new international environment. 2015 will be seen as a watershed moment in Iran’s history...

Russia - Iran: Western Sanctions as a Stimulus for Development of Relations

Relations between Russia and Iran are experiencing a stage of dynamic development. Both parties are making significant efforts to reach a qualitatively new level of cooperation in all areas of interstate relations. Great expectations are attached to the upcoming visit of Russia's president to Iran. This could very well take place in the first half of this year. The schedule for Iranian president Hasan Rouhani's participation in the Caspian summit in Astrakhan in September 2014 has also been fully coordinated...

Erdogan Goes to Tehran: Business First, Politics Second

Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan got a warm reception during his two-day long visit to Iran. Friendly attitude was emphasized at the summit – it all goes to show that Ankara and Tehran decided to forget the serious political differences for the time being so that the parties could concentrate on economic issues... Setting up Iran-Turkey Supreme Political Cooperation Council is an important step which would be impossible to take without aligning positions on regional conflicts, especially regarding the situation in Syria. According to Erdogan, the members of Council should work as members of one cabinet. At that, it’s too early to make far-reaching conclusions about the emergence of Ankara-Tehran alliance...

Geneva-2: Look from Tehran

As is known, the United States’ policy on Iranian nuclear program has come under harsh criticism on the part of Saudi Arabia and Israel. It was harsh enough to make John Kerry say on NBC's «Meet the Press», «We are not blind, and I don't think we're stupid. I think we have a pretty strong sense of how to measure whether or not we are acting in the interests of our country and of the globe». Kerry assures that the most serious, capable and competent people in the US government with great experience of dealing with Iran tackle the nuclear program issue. Is it so? By the end of the summer in 2013 the US experts on Iran pushed the United States to the brink of unleashing a perilous military adventure against Syria...

The Barriers to Iranian – American Rapprochement: Within Iran and the US (I)

Relations between Iran and the United States appear to be thawing. Within the Iranian political establishment, President Hassan Rouhani and his cabinet were endorsed as negotiators and individuals with a history of negotiating with the Americans on behalf of Tehran. Rouhani himself had negotiated a secret arms deal with the Reagan Administration during the Iran-Iraq War whereas Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif has had many meeting with US officials, hosting people like Joseph Biden in his US residence, when he was the Iranian ambassador to the United Nations in New York City...

Why Barack Obama Does not Want Iran to Take Part in Geneva-2 Conference

Barack Obama summed up the results of the year at a White House conference. Talking about foreign policy he did not omit Iran. The President made a promise to veto any sanctions imposed against this country by Congress. At that the Washington’s refusal to see Iran as a Geneva-2 conference participant sounds rather insulting for Tehran. The administration attempts to hinder the process of imposing sanctions against Iran in the Senate have led nowhere. 26 senators supported the motion, including 13 Democrats and 13 Republicans... Being an interested party, Iran is watching closely the bickering between the White House and Congress...

US Flags Still Burnt in Iran

Ayatollah Rouhollah Mousavi Khomeini (Imam Khomeini), the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, told his followers once that the day “US sycophants” came out in support of the Iranian Islamic revolution would be the day of mourning. The prospects for restoration of the relationship between the United States and Iran is only a prospect to take shape as yet, still they are tangible signs the issue has hit the agenda of Iranian ruling circles and the country’s grassroots...

Iranian Nuclear Problem: Does it Have Solution?

...The next round of Geneva talks devoted to the Iran’s nuclear program is slated to take place on October 15-16... It is expected that Tehran will agree to stop the uranium enrichment at 20%, because, as the Iranians admit themselves, what they have in storage already exceeds the national requirements... It is also expected Iran will agree to more thorough and comprehensive inspections by the inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency in comparison with the checks the IAEA experts have conducted until recently. Talking about the prospects for the closure of Fordu uranium enrichment facility, this concession is excluded: it goes beyond the limits of what is acceptable and would send a wrong message to demonstrate that Iran admits it has suffered a defeat instead of sticking to more flexible diplomacy...

US Targets Russia and China with North Korea Pretext

The North Korean state is routinely mocked in the West for engaging in hyperbole and bombast. Ironically, the Western reaction to its latest satellite launch is a carnival of knee-jerk hysteria and hyperbole. But all the bluster has conveniently given Washington an opportunity to proceed with its global missile shield plans. That is far more destabilizing to international security than any alleged North Korean violation...
