Now, Mr. Secretary General must find himself faced with this question posed by all international observers and should be held accountable as whether he, as secretary general of the United Nations, has fulfilled his duty independently to defend the rights of the oppressed people of the Gaza Strip, or has been following the will and demands of those states that are known to be supporters of Israel in the UN Security Council?

Since Iran is on its way to reduce tension with the West and sign a final comprehensive agreement with the Western countries over its nuclear energy program, as a result of which new oil markets would be opened to the country, it would be wise for Iranian officials to avoid creating any unnecessary problems in the country’s foreign policy.

It boils through morning prayers, lunches of rice and kebabs, afternoon conversation and late into the evening meal, sustaining talk of politics, gossip and news well into the night.
