Collapse of Iran deal would send a 'terrible signal': Germany

1396/6/31 | 18:55
German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel has warned that any US move to scrap Iran's nuclear deal would discourage other countries from going to the negotiating table to discuss their nuclear activities. A collapse of the accord, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), would send a “terrible signal” for other diplomatic efforts, Gabriel said on the sidelines of a UN meeting in New York on Thursday. “What should motivate countries like North Korea or others to enter into negotiations in the future when the one example ...

West’s bigoted voices: Who is to be blamed for religious radicalization?

1395/10/2 | 18:55
  While it is too early to say with surety whether the incident in Berlin on Tuesday was an attack or accident, but it would surely further strengthen the voices of bigotry in the west.     Twelve people have died so far and 48 injured due to a truck hurtling through a busy market. The loss of innocent lives is tremendously unfortunate, and no one should have to endure such a loss, especially when their loved ones had gone out to enjoy their traditional festivities.   Views in Europe and America against Muslims refugees are already ...
