President Rouhani: Intifada the example of resistance; resistance the example of human conscience
Friday, February 24, 2017

Describing intifada as the example of resistance, and resistance as the example of human conscience, President Rouhani called on Islamic countries, especially neighbours to say “No” to war and fratricide and do whatever they can to settle the issue of Palestine as the main issue of the Islamic World.

Iran and the changing world order
Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Seyyed Mohammad Eslami
“Painful to be an American right now.” This is a sentence by Francis Fukuyama, author of the famous book “The End of History and the Last Man”. He tweeted this sentence after a war of words between President Donald Trump and the Australian prime minister.

The Problem with Thinking on Your Knees
Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Mahmoud Omidsalar
The group that is driven to despair by Trumps threats is the small minority of intellectuals in and out of Iran.  They are concerned that a fight between Iran and the U.S. can only end in Iran’s defeat and destruction.  This view, it seems to me, is born of their vantage point. That is, if they get off of their knees and look carefully, they might be able to see a better and broader vista.

Spiritual Crisis: Assessing the state of the Iran nuclear deal
Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Seyed Hossein Mousavian
There has long been much handwringing in Washington over Iran’s ballistic missiles. They are portrayed as threatening to regional security and developed with the aim of one day arming with nuclear warheads. This is as missiles form an integral part of Iran’s defensive military posture, which is fundamentally geared towards deterring attack. Indeed, when it comes to conventional military power, the regional balance is staggeringly stacked against Iran, with Saudi Arabia outspending Iran 5-to-1 on its military and even the UAE, with a native Emirati population of less than 2 million, spending 50 percent more than Iran. The United States, with its massive military presence in the region, spends nearly 70 times more than Iran.

Hossein Kebriaeizadeh
Following recent cooperation between Iran and Russia in Syria and the brilliant outcomes that their cooperation had in restricting the reach of extremist elements of Daesh in the region, many experts have come to the conclusion that Russia’s active military presence in a country different from member states of the Commonwealth of Independent States is indicative of a change in Moscow’s foreign policy and Middle Eastern policy.

The Necessity of Reviving Regionalism in Iran's Foreign Policy
Saturday, February 18, 2017

Hassan Ahmadian
The Islamic Republic of Iran's foreign policy has been subject of many disputes. Some of these disputes have reached a final conclusion and have guided Iranian diplomats in the form of consensual policies. Some other disputes, however, are still far from a domestic consensus despite the fact that they have been underway for a long time. Among age-old disputes in this field is the difference of viewpoints about the country’s interaction preferences in foreign relations.
