Abdolreza Ghofrani
On balance, if Turkish president really wants growing relations with his powerful eastern neighbor, although the people of Turkey are keen for that, so it is up to him to clearly explain what did he mean by uttering such unfriendly viewpoints.

Monday, March 16, 2015

John Bryson Chane
A missing voice in negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 is that of the global interreligious community.

Mr. Netanyahu, Who Are You Kidding?
Thursday, March 5, 2015

Kambiz Zarrabi
Iran could easily walk away from the current negotiations if the United States is forced by the Congress to take a more unbending stand against Iran.
