Iran hails efforts for flights between Tehran, Washington

Jun 27 2013, 1:00am CDT | by

Tehran, June 27 (IANS) Iranian government has welcomed the efforts being made for starting direct flights between Tehran and Washington.

Tehran, June 27 — Iranian government has welcomed the efforts being made for starting direct flights between Tehran and Washington.

"We don't have any problem in this regard," reported Xinhua citing Iranian Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi, adding that many Iranians were living in the US and it would be easy for them to travel between the two capitals.

On Monday, local media reported there were some attempts underway by some agents for the establishment of direct flights between the two countries.

The US broke off diplomatic relations with Iran April 7, 1980, after a group of Iranian students seized the US embassy and captured some 60 US diplomats in 1979. Among the diplomats 52 were held captive for 444 days in the hostage crisis.

The expatriate Iranians as well as some reformists inside the country have been urging the officials of the Islamic republic to start normalising relations with the US as a major step toward solving the country's nuclear issue.

After the moderate president-elect Hassan Rouhani won Iran's presidential race June 14, hopes have been raised among the Iranians for a probable breakthrough in the nuclear standoff and also an ease in the economic hardships in their lives.

Would that Obama were a Jimmy Carter

Nov 4 2014 4:30pm CST | Source: WND

(National Review) — A weak, lame-duck Barack Obama, who has now eroded a once exuberant Democratic party, will be even weaker in the next two years. If Democratic senators who had been his stalwart supporters — voting with him over 97 percent of the time — campaigned on not wanting any connection with Obama, one can imagine what our enemies abroad think of him. If Obama adopted policies of neo-appeasement when he enjoyed ...

Border Violence in Baluchistan Tests Iran-Pakistan Relations

Nov 3 2014 6:00pm CST | Source: World Politics Review

Flare-ups along the Iran-Pakistan border, which spans the ethnic area of Baluchistan, are not new, and Tehran and Islamabad often work quickly to de-escalate them. But Iran may be backing away from that restraint, suspecting Pakistan’s Gulf Arab allies are assisting Sunni Baluch insurgents. ...

ISIS and U.S.-Iran Relations

Oct 30 2014 1:21pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

It is often said that politics makes for strange bedfellows. The truth of this aphorism has been illustrated by the ostensible warming of U.S. relations with Iran. The two countries have been at daggers drawn with each other for more than four decades. The Iranian nuclear program was another toxic issue between the two sides, which still remains unresolved. Given the long history of mutual suspicion, it is intriguing that the advance of ISIS, in Syria and Iraq, is ...
