Outcomes of Saudi King’s Visit to Egypt
Friday, April 15, 2016

IRNA Research and News Analysis Group
When it comes to competition with Iran and in order to recruit more allies, Saudis are willing to get Egypt in line with their policies even by giving many concessions to Cairo. Of course, Egypt has been making the most of this trump card in its own favor. In other words, the coldness in relations between Iran and Egypt can be considered to be partly related to the existing tensions between Tehran and Riyadh and this issue has turned into a tool in the hands of Egyptians, who are using it to take economic advantage of Saudi Arabia.

Has Russia Forsaken Us in Syria: Four Chapters in Tehran-Moscow Relations in Syria
Wednesday, April 13, 2016

Saeid Jafari
Therefore, if we base our analysis on interests and if believe that Iran's interests can be best met through continued presence of Assad in power, the question would be “who paved the way for Iran to do this in recent years?” Of course, Russia has not done and will not do this to appease us. However, since its interests overlapped with ours in this period of time, we have been able to stand by each other and follow up on a common plan. This association naturally will not mean that Tehran and Moscow will stand by each other and move in the same direction forever.

Kerry in Persian Gulf to Curry Favor with Sheikhs
Wednesday, April 13, 2016

Mohammad Mehdi Mazaheri
If the United States is willing to play a positive role in the Middle East and the Persian Gulf regions, it must mix its foreign policy with some degree of audacity, give up double-standard and contradictory approaches, and just in the same way that through nuclear negotiations found Iran to be a pacifist country that seeks negotiations and is trustworthy, does not try to take positions against the realities on the ground during the post-JCPOA period in order to curry favor with the Persian Gulf sheikdoms.

Obama’s regional tour in parallel to anti-Iran remarks made by American and Saudi officials can not only help the United States find a good market for its weapons, but also stress the point that if the nuclear phase of the West’s move against Iran was completed in cooperation with Europe, now littoral Arab countries of the Persian Gulf are missioned to keep up propaganda against Iran's missiles.

Reasons and Dimensions of Recent Crisis in Karabakh
Friday, April 8, 2016

Vali Kouzegar Kaleji
The name of Karabakh, instead of being a reminder of its beautiful nature as well as historical and cultural characteristics, has mostly come to be associated with one of the most lasting ethnic disputes over the past few decades, which in the political literature of the Caucasus region and usually along with ethnic crises in Chechnya, Abkhazia, and South Ossetia, has come to be known under such titles as the “frozen conflict” or “unresolved conflict.”

Bahram Amir-Ahmadian
The fourth trilateral meeting between the foreign ministers of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Turkey and the Republic of Azerbaijan was held in northern Iranian city of Ramsar on Tuesday, April 5, 2016. Holding of the fourth round of this meeting at such a tumultuous time with high tensions in the region can be taken as a good omen and a sign of the existence of diplomacy and lasting multilateralism.

Mohammad Irani
Encouraging national dialogue and participation of all groups in determining the fate of Lebanon could be a serious step toward resolution of the existing crisis. With regard to the role of regional and transregional actors, it must be noted that foreign intervention will further complicate the situation. However, purposive and systematic foreign support can pave the way for the resolution of Lebanon’s crisis.

Adopting a media policy free from foreign intervention and pressure and based on logical activities in line with the two sides’ bilateral and regional interests, and without marginal issues that may undermine neighborly relations, can lead to enlightenment of public opinion and have positive psychological effects on rebuilding the Caucasus region, which is facing a potential crisis. Through a different discourse, the two countries can embark on reviewing their goals in the region, the Islamic world and at international level in order to retrieve their common goals and play their dynamic and lasting role in reducing crises at all aforesaid levels.

Ahmed Aboul Gheit Heading the League of Arab Nations and the Outlook of Arab-Arab Struggle
Tuesday, March 29, 2016

Behzad Khoshandam
While major actors within the Arab League are exposed to huge terrorist threats and face the increasing risk of implosion, disintegration and civil war, at the beginning of Ahmed Aboul Gheit’s term as secretary general, this regional body has been moving toward the self-manufactured Arab-Arab trap and in doing so is practically committing strategic suicide. By designating some of its important and key members as terrorist groups, the Arab League is playing the game designed for it by radicalism-oriented and ill-wishers of this league.
