Danger of Wahhabism Is the Real Threat
Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Mohammad Javad Zarif
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says projects by the Israeli and Saudi Arabian regimes to portray Iran as a threat to the world have been falling flat over the past years.

US Administration Failed to Enable Iran to Access Its Oil Revenues
Monday, July 25, 2016

Peter Jenkins
More blameworthy is the administration's failure to enable Iran to access previously frozen oil revenues. Easy solutions to this problem have been on hand. The administration has lacked the political will to implement one of them. Perhaps it will find the will after November's US elections. The Joint Commission can be used to discuss and find solutions to implementation issues. These banking issues seem to me ripe for submission to the Joint Commission. Only good can come of that.

The Parliamentarist Discourse and Turkey’s Failed Coup d'état
Monday, July 25, 2016

Hossein Mofidi Ahmadi
The failure of the recent coup attempt in Turkey and its comparison with the successful coup d'état staged by the Egyptian military can teach good lessons to political leaders in Ankara and across region. Perhaps the most important lesson of this coup attempt was that if a society chooses for parliamentary methods in order to pursue its goals, violent and non-civil actions would never succeed in that society. 

AK Party’s Post-Coup Scenarios for Turkey
Monday, July 25, 2016

Mohammad Ali Dastmali
AK Party, as a major social and political current, which has served as a big machine building its own cadre in various fields during past years, will thereafter try to get more active in the military field as well and inject part of its young and Islamist supporters into the ranks of the army and gendarmerie in order to make these institutions more uniform and controllable in the future.

Political and Social Reasons for Failure of Terrorist Attacks in Iran
Friday, July 22, 2016

Hossein Kebriaeezadeh
It seems that the most important reason behind Iran’s success in establishing calm and stability and stopping the flow of terrorism through its borders is rooted in the way that Iran looks upon the issue of terrorism. Unlike the West and even regional countries, Iran does not believe that terrorism has its roots in the ideology of the Arab world, but maintains that Daesh and other terrorist groups are short-term phenomena mostly emanating from geopolitical issues and are a result of political crises as well as the waning power of nation-states in the region.

Political Discord and Media War Continue to Damage Iran-Turkey Relations
Thursday, July 21, 2016

Elyas Vahedi
Although in the greater part of their remarks, senior officials of Iran and Turkey note that the two countries share common views on regional issues, the media war, which is going on between the two countries’ journalists, political elites and some middle-ranking officials, makes one believe that a full-fledged war is going on between the two countries. 

Undermining JCPOA Not in Best Interest of Any Party
Wednesday, July 20, 2016

Pierre Goldschmidt
The JCPOA will survive any political storm as long as it is in every party's best interest to pursue its full implementation. The future is unpredictable but as of today I can't see which state-party could reasonably have a real interest in scuttling the deal during the coming 9 years, even if opposition groups will likely try to undermine its implementation.

An Analysis of Turkey’s Bungled Coup Attempt
Wednesday, July 20, 2016

Ja'far Haghpanah
Analysis of Turkey’s botched coup attempt is very important not simply because of geographical and spiritual propinquity of this incident to our country as well as cultural, social, political, economic and security ties between Turkey and Iran, but also because of its regional consequences and its effects on Iran's interests and national security. 

Expansion of NATO and its Missile Defense System Pose a Common Threat to Iran and Russia
Tuesday, July 19, 2016

Alireza Noori
This reality is being gradually accepted in Russia that to do away with threats emanating from West’s military expansionism, there is no way but “resistance.” This is the same conclusion which had existed in Iran since past times and Iran’s emphasis on the necessity to maintain the “axis of resistance” in the Middle East has been, in fact, an effort to underline the need to oppose the domination of the West’s “language of force and threat” on the region.

Coup d’état in Turkey and Deciphering Iran's Positions
Sunday, July 17, 2016

Amir Hossein Yazdanpanah
Disruption of security in Turkey would affect security in our country as well and this is why we consider security in neighboring countries as tantamount to our own security and any crisis in Turkey or other neighboring countries, which would undermine security as well as the economic and political system in these countries, is not desirable to us and would have a negative impact on our national interests.
