JCPOA’s Effect on Lawmaking at US Congress
Wednesday, July 27, 2016
In other words, anti-Iran American lawmakers are no more capable of taking advantage of their past weapon of passing “binding laws” and extraterritorial laws against the Islamic Republic. Therefore, in order to do harm to the implementation of the JCPOA and prevent foreign investment in Iran, they have no choice, but to resort to “publicity stunt.”
Iran and Russia in Post-JCPOA Era
Tuesday, July 26, 2016
The implementation of Iran's nuclear deal with the P5+1 group of countries, which is known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and removal of sanctions imposed on Iran is an issue, which will affect Iran's relations with many states. As a result, economic relations between Iran and the Russian Federation have been offered with many new opportunities in post-JCPOA era and the deal will be an end to an eight-year period in which trade exchanges between the two countries were in decline.
Terrorism in Europe
Monday, July 25, 2016
The modern world needs to revise its treatment of the traditional world, which allows radical forces to justify violence regardless of their affiliations. If terrorism is bad, restricting it to Muslims and ignoring Christian and Jewish extremists would be bad on the same scale. As long as there is discrimination, intervention, occupation, plundering of the national riches of nations, and collusion between the West and a local minority that monopolizes power, there would be violence in the West, regardless of whether they call it terrorism or simple fighting.
The Parliamentarist Discourse and Turkey’s Failed Coup d'état

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.

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 Discord and Media War Continue to Damage Iran-Turkey Relations
Thursday, July 21, 2016
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.
An Analysis of Turkey’s Bungled Coup Attempt
Wednesday, July 20, 2016
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
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.
Saudi Arabia Riding a Dead Horse
Friday, July 15, 2016
Ali Mousavi Khalkhali
Saudi Arabia’s unprecedented show of support for the MKO proves that in their animosity with Iran, Saudi officials are now resorting to a dead horse. Perhaps, Saudis themselves are well aware that the MKO has no place in Iran and this dead horse will only cause them more cost, but they want to convey the message to Tehran that they will stop at nothing in their hostility against the Islamic Republic of Iran, even if it requires the use of such a dead horse as the MKO.
