Iran condemns terrorist blasts in Iraq

بهرام قاسمی

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi condemned two terrorist attacks in Iraq during which at least 27 people were killed and more than 100 wounded.

Expressing sympathy with the Iraqi government, nation and the families of the victims of the bitter catastrophe, Ghasemi said: “the criminal act during the holy fasting month of Ramadan is a clear indication of Takfiri terrorists’ hostility with actual Islam and the Muslims”.

He described the attacks as the last vain attempts of terrorists for escape from the failure.

Referring to the latest achievements of Iraqi Army and popular forces in Mosul, Ghasemi said: “the final victory against terrorism in Iraq is so close and I hope we see complete purging Iraq of terrorists very soon”.

Russia warns against deferring investigations into the Syrian chemical dossier

Tehran (ISNA) – Ministry of foreign affairs of the Russian Federation warned in a statement against deferring investigations into the Syrian chemical dossier.

Here is the full text of the statement:

On May 23, the UNSC held its successive discussion on the state of affairs around the so-called Syrian "chemical dossier". The Western "troika" of permanent members of the UN Security Council sought to give an anti-Assad and anti Russian pronounced spin to this event. It was reconfirmed that these "exposers" of Damascus were not interested in establishing the truth in a crucial issue of who actually stood behind the alleged use of sarin on April 4, 2017, in the Syrian province of Idlib. Representatives of the United States, Great Britain and France have desperately resisted any attempt to figure out to what extent their verdict delivered "in absentia" about the allegedly undeniable responsibility of the Bashar Al-Assad Government for this chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun was justified.

An unsightly scene has been developed. It seems that almost two months after the chemical incident nobody has been in a hurry to visit Khan Sheikhoun in order to examine all the circumstances of such a high-impact case. Moreover, the Westerners have ruled out even the very option of visiting the Shayirat airbase where, according to their own allegations, the sarin used in Khan Sheikhoun was stored.

Unfortunately, no activity has been undertaken in this regard by the OPCW Fact Finding Mission (FFM) that proceeds with postponing its visit to Khan Sheikhoun blaming unfavorable security conditions. As for the leadership of the OPCW – UN Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM), it is yet to develop a plan of investigatory actions indicating sites to visit, individuals to question and documents to claim.

Russia's position on this ongoing situation is well known and crystal clear: the investigation of this incident should be carried out as scrupulously as possible, in strict compliance with the JIM and FFM mandates approved by the UNSC and OPCW and include all investigatory actions, methods and proceedings envisaged in relevant UNSC resolutions and the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC). Both Khan Sheikhoun and Shayirat airbase must be visited, the first as the site of this barbaric deed and the second as facility claimed to be allegedly in a direct relation with it. The established vicious practice within the JIM and FFM of conducting investigations in a remote mode based on the evidence provided by questionable witnesses or sometimes even "false victims" is absolutely unacceptable. The resources of NGOs that compromised themselves long ago and have established links with militants and terrorist entities are widely used. This is not just an imitation of work – we are dealing with a deliberate, intentional falsification in pursuance of clearly established political objectives.

We once again call upon our Western partners, flaunting their quasi-evidence, to answer a number of the specific questions. In particular, whether the fundamental CWC procedure of chain of custody was observed during the collection of biomedical and other samples, or not? Isn’t it time to stop building far-reaching accusatory conclusions on crudely orchestrated, staged video-materials and other unreliable information, with which the irreconcilable Syrian opposition and its foreign patrons abundantly provide the JIM and FFM?

Returning to the issue of a visit to the Shayirat airbase, we recall that, in the early April 2017, Damascus has already provided official guarantees of secure access to it for the FFM specialists. Moreover, the Syrian Government has demanded that such a visit be organized without delay, thus confirming its willingness to fulfill its commitments arising from p. 12 of the FFM Mandate (Terms of Reference) and provisions of p. 15 of Part XI of the Verification Annex to the CWC. It is explicitly stated there that "the inspection team (of the OPCW) shall have the right of access to any and all areas which could be affected by the alleged use of chemical weapons". Therefore, all prerequisites for organizing such a visit in terms of ensuring security and fulfilling the obligations under the Convention have already been created. So, this is in stark contrast with the JIM's inactivity and an indifferent stand of the OPCW's leadership, which believes that visit to the airbase is beyond the FFM competence.

We insist that along with the FFM the JIM should get involved in the investigation of the situation at the Shayirat airbase. We recall that operative paragraph 6 of UNSC resolution 2319 directs the Joint Investigative Mechanism to offer its services to the OPCW. UNSC resolution 2235, which in fact established the Mechanism, contains pp. 3 and 4 stipulating the requirement to identify those responsible for acquiring and stockpiling chemical weapons. Besides, p. 7 of this resolution clearly states the need for full access to all locations relevant to the investigation. So, why has this provisions been flagrantly disregarded by our opponents?

Not only we but also a number of other countries deem a visit to the Shayirat airbase necessary "based on the facts and circumstances known at the time" (p. 7 of UNSC resolution 2235).

We urge the JIM leadership and the OPCW Technical Secretariat to undertake immediate measures to rectify the current situation, send their specialists to Khan Sheikhoun and the Shayirat airbase without delay, ensure comprehensive and impartial investigation of all circumstances of this case and take other measures under their mandates to "…identify to the greatest extent feasible individuals, entities, groups, or governments who were perpetrators, organisers, sponsors or otherwise involved in the use of chemicals as weapons, including chlorine or any other toxic chemical, in the Syrian Arab Republic…" (p. 5 of UNSC resolution 2235).

Further avoidance of a comprehensive investigation will bring into question the capacity of the JIM and FFM and the necessity of their further existence accordingly.

Iran welcomes cementing ties with Azerbaijan in all fields

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian President in a phone call with his Azerbaijani counterpart stressed that there are good opportunities for developing and deepening Tehran-Baku ties in energy, investment, transportation, trade and tourism.

During the phone call that was initiated by the Azerbaijani part, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said: “The Islamic Republic of Iran welcomes cementing relations with the Republic of Azerbaijan in all fields”.

“Firm resolve by the two government and deep commonalities between the two nations have provided strong pillars for deepening and developing Tehran-Baku relations,” he continued.

Stating that there are no obstacles on the path of developing, economic, trade and cultural ties between the two countries, Rouhani added: “Quick implementation of agreements can further deepen mutual and regional cooperation”.

Describing the outlook of Tehran-Baku ties very bright, Rouhani expressed hope that with quick implementation of agreements between the two countries, the required bedrock for cooperation, especially in the fields of transit, energy and trade, be further formed.

On the need for a collective effort to fight terrorism and extremism and establishing more unity among Islamic countries, he said: “We all must try to eradicate the roots of extremism among people in Islamic countries”.

In the phone call, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev congratulated Rouhani’s re-election and described relations between the two countries developing, especially in the past four years which he described exceptional.

All agreements should be put into action, said Aliyev adding: “The required directives have been issued and Rasht-Astara railway will be signed and finalized soon”.

Expressing satisfaction over Iranian companies’ active role in Azerbaijan, he said: “We are determined to deepen relations with Tehran in all fields and this is what the two great Iranian and Azerbaijani nations want”.

On terrorism and regional cooperation, he said: “We are willing to develop our relations with Tehran in the field of regional stability and security and fighting extremism, violence and terrorism”.

Another 4 Years with President Rouhani

The presidential election for 12th government after revolution took place on 18th May 2017 and Dr. Rouhani got 23.5 million votes, leading by 8 million ballots from his nearest rival Ebrahim Raeisi, who got 15.7 million votes, indicating a 57% to 38% victory. It means that around 73% of eligible people in Iran have participated in this election. This was among one of the elections with highest rate of participation. His major competitor had some promises about increasing subsidiaries and he said that if he became president he will triple the amount of subsidiary. This promise looks populistic and he wanted to get the vote of majority but it seems that political point of view of people in Iran has been improved during the last few years and they didn’t like this promise as they used to do so. People instead voted to the moderate point of view of Dr. Rouhani which means better relationships with international world, stable economic growth and long term policies in order to have a better economic situation.

Inflation Rate:

After many years of difficult situation for Iran, four years ago, when Dr. Rouhani became Iran`s president, the economic situation was not in a good position. GDP growth was -1.9% in 2013 when he became president. Another trouble during his presidency was the price of oil which hadn’t been around those prices since 2004. One of his most important promises was lifting sanctions against Iran and with many days of negotiation and his powerful diplomacy team he did it.

For more than 26 years, inflation rate in Iran was double digit unlike most of the developed and developing countries around the world. President Rouhani were able to decrease inflation to single digit after 26 years. It should be mentioned that after Islamic revolution in 1979, the inflation rate just in 1986 and 1991 was single digit as it shown in the chart below. Based on economic principles it is a difficult situation when a government want to control inflation rate and bring growth to the economy at a same time. President Rouhani and his financial team of advisors focused on decreasing inflation rate as the main target. They have applied contractionary fiscal policy and in order to do so they gathered liquidity in the market by issuing bond and treasury bills.

Foreign Investment during the last 4 years of President Rouhani

There are lots of opportunities for investment in Iran specially in tourism industry, oil and gas fields, fast moving consumer goods(FMCG), renewable energies and etc. However, before removal of sanctions, foreign investors were not confident enough to considering investment in Iran but after lifting of sanctions, there are lots of institutional and natural investors who came to Iran and they tried to do research about available opportunities in Iran. Based on an official report by the government, the value of FDIs was around 12 billion Dollars during 2016.

The main focus of President Rouhani is attracting foreign investment in technology and infrastructure (banks and other financial institutions). In addition, he tries to increase export of oil and non-oil products and especially petrochemical products. Iran holds 18.3% of gas reserves but it has a share of 1% in the global market. This can show the huge potential of investment in this field.

What is the main problem regarding foreign investment?

The main issue in foreign investment is banking issue. Most of the banks around the world try to escape from working with Iran and it seems that it is mostly because of their concern regarding snap back. Also, after presidency of Mr. Trump in United States this concern became more highlighted. But unlike what President Trump was saying in the beginning regarding Iran, he signed the waiver of sanctions on 17th May 2017. It seems that it was not an easy decision to disobey this agreement because it is a strong agreement. On the other hand, Iranian banks have technical issues in order to be connected to international system. There are some differences between Iran`s infrastructure and rest of the world in terms of coding, compliance, risk assessment and etc. but recently, some of Iranian banks have started to improve their infrastructure. On the other hand, another good news about Iranian banks is that 3 of them will open their branches in Munich during the current year and this can be a very good sign for international banks and it can bring confidence for them. In addition, regarding to get closer to international standards, a number of companies have started to report their financial statements based on IFRS. The good point is Iranian standards in financial reporting are around 80% same with IFRS and it means that it doesn’t need too much time in order to do so. Ernst & Young and Deloitte are among well-known international companies which have started to provide their services in Iran and they work closely with Iranian partners.

What is President Rouhani`s plan for next 4 years in terms of foreign investment?

It seems that the most important thing for President Rouhani in order to ease the inflow of investments to Iran is to find a solution for banking issue because at the moment there are few banks that work with Iran in terms of money transfer to and from Iran. On the other hand, President Rouhani and his financial advisor team are trying to keep inflation rate as the main target and via contractionary fiscal policy but the point is they can’t keep the interest rate on deposits very high for a long time because the gap between inflation rate and risk free rate is more than 10% at the moment and this is in conflict with growth of the economy. Little by little they have to decrease this rate and by financing project from outside of Iran they can control the inflation.

It should be mentioned that regarding the priorities of the government for reaching stable economic growth as it is mentioned in the sixth five-year development plan (2016-21), President Rouhani has no other way than focusing on foreign investment. One of the most important factors in attracting foreign investment is stability and as the main goal of the government is to control inflation, it seems that with resolving banking issue we could see more inflow of foreign investment in Iran and it is expected that Rial will depreciate with a smooth trend and therefore it won’t affect the attractiveness of investment for foreigners. In addition, the government plans to unify the different rates for foreign exchanges and this can lead to a clearer path of economy and also more stable conditions.

Iran, EEU discuss free trade pact

TEHRAN, June 2, YJC - Iran on Thursday discussed a free trade pact with the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) thus moving a step close to joining the Russia-led single market.

Iran, EEU discuss free trade pact

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The agreement was reviewed in St. Petersburg during a meeting between the visiting Iranian Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mahmoud Vaezi and EEU Minister of Trade Veronika Nikishina.

Vaezi, who co-chairs Iran-Russia Economic Cooperation Commission with Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak, told reporters that his discussions with Nikishina had helped the proceedings for Iran to join the EEU.

He described as important any effort to expedite the proceedings for Iran to join the Union.

The Iranian minister further emphasized that both sides should show more flexibility in the discussions, stressing that Tehran was ready to do so to help move toward a final agreement.   

Elsewhere in his remarks, Vaezi emphasized that EEU officials would be invited to visit Iran, stressing that the country was ready to announce a timetable for the next round of negotiations in Tehran.

He said Iran had already drafted a list of 200 items for trade with the EEU, adding that more items could be included in the future.

Vaezi said Iran and the EEU would implement a regime of preferential tariffs for three years after signing a mutual free trade agreement.  He added that both sides would later move toward free trade.

Nikishina, for her part, said the EEU was satisfied over the progress of talks with Tehran. She expressed hope that the final text of the agreement with Iran would be presented for discussion during the next meeting of the presidents of Iran and Russia. 

The EEU is an economic union of former Soviet states led by Russia which is meant to guarantee free transit of goods, services, capital and workers among member states.  

The bloc which began functioning on 1 January 2015 is being considered as a major economic force to challenge the might of the European Union and the US.


Iran, Russia sign ‘revised’ oil-for-goods deal

TEHRAN, June 2, YJC - Russia said it has signed a revised contract with Iran over a much-debated and long-delayed scheme to barter crude oil with goods and commodities.

Iran, Russia sign ‘revised’ oil-for-goods deal

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak was quoted as saying by media that the changes in the contract concerned technical aspects and prices.

Iran’s Ministry of Petroleum is yet to react to Novak’s remarks.

Last month, Iran’s Petroleum Minister Bijan Zanganeh announced that an oil-for-goods contract had been signed between the two countries.

"The deal has been concluded. We are just waiting for the implementation from the Russian side. We have no difficulties; we signed the contract, everything is coordinated between the parties. We are waiting for Russian oil companies to send tankers,” he was quoted as saying by Russia’s RIA and TASS news agencies.

The agreement was initially reached in 2014 when Iran was under Western sanctions over its nuclear program.

Russian traders were to participate in the selling of Iranian oil. In exchange, Iran wanted essential goods and technology from Russia.

When the sanctions against Tehran were lifted in 2016, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said the deal was no longer necessary.

However, Novak said in March 2017 that the plan was back on the table with Russia buying 100,000 barrels per day from Iran and selling the country $45 billion worth of goods, Russia Today said in a report on its website.

Novak had announced in February that Russia’s state trading enterprise Promsirieimport has been authorized by the government to carry out the purchase of Iran’s oil through the oil-for-goods program under study by both countries.

To the same effect, Zanganeh had been quoted by the media as saying that Iran would be paid in cash for half of the oil that would be sold to Russia.  The due payments for the remaining half would be made in goods and services, the Iranian minister had said.

Last September, Iran and Kenya emphasized their determination to enhance bilateral cooperation in different areas, economy in particular.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani met with Justin Muturi, Kenya’s National Assembly Speaker, in Tehran, where the two sides discussed ways to promote their relations in September.

During the talks, Rouhani said forging closer ties with Kenya is among the priorities in Iran’s foreign policy agenda, adding that the two sides should seize the opportunity created by the removal of anti-Tehran sanctions to broaden their cooperation.

Rouhani condoles with Afghanistan over Kabul attack

TEHRAN, June 2, YJC - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has expressed Iran’s solidarity with Afghanistan in the ongoing campaign against terrorism and extremism following a recent deadly attack in Kabul.

Rouhani condoles with Afghanistan over Kabul attack

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - "In this great tragedy, the Islamic Republic of Iran will stand beside the brotherly Afghan government and nation and keep up... its decisive battle to completely eradicate terror and extremism,” Rouhani wrote in a Thursday message to his Afghan counterpart Ashraf Ghani.

Rouhani expressed condolences to the Afghan government and nation and wished patience for the families of the victims of the Wednesday bombing.

"Carrying out criminal terrorist attacks in the holy month of Ramadan, which is the month of mercy and worship, is indicative of the fact that the perpetrators, directors and supporters of such blind actions have in no way benefited from the perspicuous religion of Islam and its humane teachings,” Rouhani added.

On Wednesday morning, a massive bomb blast near the presidential palace and foreign embassies in the center of Kabul claimed the lives of at least 90 people and injured hundreds of others.

The Daesh Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack, the precise target of which remained unclear, even though it hit Zanbaq Square, close to the German embassy.

According to reports, several embassies were damaged in the large explosion.

The Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran was also damaged in the explosion which also partially destroyed the Iranian ambassador’s residence.

Moreover, Press TV's cameraman in Kabul Habibollah Hosseinzadeh has gone missing since he left his home on Wednesday for the Press TV office located near the blast site.

The bomb blast on the highly-secured area is said to be "one of the biggest” in the city, which has already been the target of many terrorist attacks in the first three months of 2017.

Senior Iranian cleric blasts Bahrain moves against Sheikh Qassim

TEHRAN, June 1, YJC - Director of Iran’s Islamic Seminaries Ayatollah Alireza A’arafi denounced the Manama regime for repressing dissent in the Arab country and for its moves against Sheikh Isa Qassim, the spiritual leader of Bahrain’s Shiite majority.

Senior Iranian cleric blasts Bahrain moves against Sheikh Qassim

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - "The steps taken by Bahrain’s regime against its noble people…, especially scholars and the clergy, make history’s (vile despots) look good,” Ayatollah Arafi said in a statement released on Wednesday.

He condemned Bahraini rulers’ recent measures against Sheikh Qassim and other Muslim scholars and warned Manama to immediately change such policies.  

Ayatollah Arafi further deplored world bodies’ silence over the ongoing crackdown on Bahraini people and support for the Al Khalifa regime by Saudi Arabia and the world arrogance.

Last week, Bahraini regime forces stormed into the residence of Sheikh Qassim in the village of Diraz, arresting everyone inside the house.

Reports suggest that the Bahrain top cleric is now under house arrest.

At least six people were reportedly killed in the raid, and over 280 others were arrested.

The raid came a few days after a Bahraini court sentenced Sheikh Qassim to one year in prison. Based on the verdict, the cleric’s properties worth three million Bahraini dinars (near $8 million) were also confiscated. Moreover, Sheikh Qassim was sentenced to pay a fine of 100,000 Bahraini dinars (about $265,000).

Bahrain, a close ally of the US in the Persian Gulf, has been witnessing almost daily protests against the Al Khalifa dynasty since early 2011, with security forces resorting to harsh measures against demonstrators.

Scores of Bahrainis have been killed and hundreds of others injured and arrested in the ongoing crackdown on the peaceful protests.

Fire extinguished at Iran’s South Pars gas field

TEHRAN, June 1, YJC - Firefighters brought a fire at Iran’s giant South Pars gas field under control on Thursday morning.

Fire extinguished at Iran’s South Pars gas field

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - A fire broke out at a propane pipeline in South Pars gas field’s phases 20 and 21, on the onshore units of the giant complex, on late Wednesday night.

Firefighters and forces from the gas field’s HSE (Health and Safety Executive) unit could extinguish the blaze after around two hours, an official said.

The South Pars gas field, whose development has been divided into 28 phases, is located in the Persian Gulf straddling the maritime border between Iran and Qatar.

One of the most serious incidents in the history of Iran’s energy industry took place in July 2016, when an inferno broke out at Bu Ali Sina Petrochemical Refinery Complex in Mahshahr and raged at a giant storage tank for more than two days.

Iranian official urges UN to end human rights breach in Bahrain

TEHRAN, June 1, YJC - A senior Iranian human rights official called on the United Nations to take measures to bring a halt to the organized violation of human rights by the Bahraini regime and force Manama to stop suppression of religious freedom.

Iranian official urges UN to end human rights breach in Bahrain

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Chief of the Iranian Judiciary's Human Rights Council Mohammad Javad Larijani in separate letters to UN Secretary General António Guterres and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein called for action for a peaceful settlement of the situation in Bahrain.

The international community is expected to fulfil its duties under the UN Charter and international conventions to gain a correct understanding of the crisis in Bahrain and stop the continuous violation of human rights and suppression of religious and sectarian freedom in the Arab country, he added.

Criticizing the Manama regime for attributing popular civil demands to religious motivations since the beginning of unrest in 2011, Larijani listed some of the most blatant illegal measures the Al Khalifa regime has taken against the people of Bahrain, including demolition of mosques, prohibition of religious rites, serving summons on clerics and preachers, imprisoning political and religious leaders, and stripping popular Shiite cleric Sheikh Isa Qassim of his nationality.

The Manama regime’s insistence on policing and security approaches has only complicated the situation in Bahrain, he deplored.

The Iranian official further asked the UN officials to employ international human rights mechanisms to overturn unjust verdicts against Sheikh Qassim, guarantee the freedom of the cleric, his family and supporters, and have the Al Khalifa government release Bahraini prisoners who have been arrested for demanding their rights. 

Bahrain, a close ally of the US in the Persian Gulf region, has been witnessing almost daily protests against the ruling Al Khalifa dynasty since early 2011, with Manama using heavy-handed measures in an attempt to crush the demonstrations.

Scores of Bahrainis have been killed and hundreds of others injured and arrested in the ongoing crackdown on the peaceful demonstrations.

Iran commander stresses security steps on Imam Khomeini demise anniversary

Iran commander stresses security steps on Imam Khomeini demise anniversary

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - In a speech on Wednesday, Brigadier General Salami pointed to the mourning ceremony due to be held at the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini (RA), the late founder of the Islamic Republic, in southern Tehran and described the annual massive gathering as one of "the most glorious ceremonies” in the world.
