Trump’s Iran plans pushing EU toward Russia, China: Germany

1396/7/21 | 14:35
US President Donald Trump’s reported plans to “decertify” the 2015 Iran nuclear deal is alienating Washington’s European allies, pushing them towards Russia and China, says German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel. The comments came amid speculation that Trump was going to unveil a broad strategy on confronting Iran on Friday, in part by refusing to certify Tehran's commitment to the nuclear deal with the P5+1 group of nations—the US, the UK, France, China, Russia and Germany. Under the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of ...

Mysterious spike in radioactive particles across Europe baffles scientists

1396/7/20 | 14:35

The heightened levels were detected at several trace measuring stations in Europe, and at six locations in Germany.     The particles are ruthenium-106, an isotope used in cancer radiation therapy for eye tumors and at times in radioisotope thermoelectric generators ...

Amid an escalating ...

Merkel’s victory: The rise of Extremism in the world

1396/7/6 | 14:35
    Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives beat their rivals on Sunday to win her a fourth term in an election that will brought a far-right party into Germany's parliament for the first time in more than half a century.     After shock election results last year, from Britain's vote to leave the European Union to the election of President Donald Trump, many look to Merkel to rally a bruised liberal Western order tasking her with leading a post-Brexit Europe.     Where Emmanuel Macron’s twin decisive ...

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

1396/6/31 | 14:35
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 ...

Syrian ceasefire: US again comes to rescue defeating Takfiris

1396/4/19 | 14:35

1395/11/19 | 14:35
    When the 2015 nuclear deal was reached between Iran and the five permanent members of the Security Council, plus Germany, there was a feeling of relief in most of the international community; conflict had been averted and diplomacy had won the day.      Of course, there were critics of the deal, most prominently members of the far right in the US, as well as the powers that be in Tel Aviv and the Gulf sheikhdoms.     Today, as conflict rages in the Middle East — fuelled both by the attempts at regime ...

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

1395/10/2 | 14:35
  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 ...
