In blow to Trump, China rejects US request to cut Iran oil imports

1397/5/13 | 05:39
China has rejected a US demand to cut Iranian oil imports despite Washington’s attempts to bring down the Islamic Republic's oil sales to zero, Bloomberg reports. The financial news provider quoted informed officials on Friday as saying that the US had been unable to persuade China to cut Iranian oil imports and that Beijing's purchases from Tehran last month remained unchanged. This is a blow to US President Donald Trump’s efforts to isolate Iran after his withdrawal from a 2015 nuclear deal with the country, officially known as the Joint ...

Trump to Saudi: Lower oil prices or we will not ‘defend’ you

1397/4/15 | 05:39
  If Gulf countries do not increase oil outputs to cover the shortfall left by Iran, America may not defend them, US President Donald Trump has warned in a tweet. America wants to cut Iran’s oil exports to zero by November. Should it succeed and Tehran’s two million barrels a day be taken off the market, the cost of oil is likely to soar and cause a major headache for Trump domestically; the American public are known to be hostile to anything that increases the cost of filling up their cars. Trump’s plan is to get the Gulf countries ...

The New ‘Axis of Evil’ Forms Up Against Iran

1397/2/30 | 05:39
  A quadripartite “axis of evil” that includes Israel, the United States, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates is moving its military assets, conducting softening-up military action, invading and occupying foreign territory, and waging economic warfare in preparation for a military campaign against Iran and its allies.

Trump ...

Trump links US exit from nuclear deal to Iran military budget

1397/2/23 | 05:39
  US President Donald Trump is erroneously linking the US exit from the Iran nuclear deal to the country’s military budget to justify the move in the wake of pressure from US allies and his opponents inside the country. Trump who withdrew from the international deal recently said in a tweet on Saturday that it was just a “big lie.” The president tacitly censured “the Obama,” former US President Barrack Obama, who was in office during the negotiations involving Tehran, the UK, Russia, Germany, China and France. “Iran’s Military ...

Zangeneh: Trump exit not to impact Iran's oil industry

1397/2/21 | 05:39
  Iran says its oil industry is in a far better shape than before and can withstand the sanctions that the US plans to impose on it. Iran’s Petroleum Minister Bijan Zangeneh said threatening Iran with sanctions against its oil industry was an issue of the past, stressing that the country had already been able to safeguard itself against such threats over the past few years. Zangeneh was referring to an earlier announcement by US President Donald Trump that he would take America out of a 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran and move toward ...

Trump morally unfit to be president: Ex-FBI director

1397/1/27 | 05:39
  Former FBI director James Comey said in an ABC News interview on Sunday that US President Donald Trump is a dangerous, “morally unfit” leader doing “tremendous damage” to institutional norms. Comey, fired by Trump in May last year, was worried the president may be open to blackmail by Russia given claims he was present when prostitutes urinated on each other during a 2013 Moscow visit. Comey’s firing came as the Federal Bureau of Investigation was probing possible connections between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and ...

Trump prepared for military action in Syria to deter chemical attacks: Officials

1396/11/13 | 05:39
  Senior US officials have claimed President Donald Trump is prepared to launch a military action if necessary against the Syrian government which they say is possibly developing new types of chemical weapons. The officials on Thursday said the government of Syrian Bashar al-Assad saved a part of chemical weapons stockpile despite a US-Russian deal under which Damascus had agreed to hand over all such weapons for destruction.

1396/10/29 | 05:39
  Former US Special Envoy for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations Martin Indyk has taken to Twitter to announce that US President Donald Trump is no longer following the Saudi/UAE script on Qatar.       Indyk explained that this may be because Qatar is now cooperating regarding the fight against terrorism and is willing to discuss the conflict between Doha and the countries that imposed the blockade on it.     Two days ago, in a telephone conversation with the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, Trump ...

1396/9/25 | 05:39

1396/7/22 | 05:39

Netanyahu Says Trump Promised to ‘Fix’ Iran Deal

1396/6/30 | 05:39
  President Trump was very coy about his intentions on the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran today, speaking at the UN General Assembly.

Venezuela’s opposition rejects Trump’s military intervention remarks

1396/5/23 | 05:39

New sanctions: US’s nefarious design to install Washington friendly govt in Tehran

1396/5/1 | 05:39
  Once again US has targeted Iran for new sanctions and the Iranian reaction was swift, with President Rouhani saying on Wednesday that his country would “respond appropriately” to US moves.     Instead of building upon the 2015 nuclear agreement — which Mr Trump once termed “the worst deal ever” — and addressing its concerns with Iran at the negotiating table, it appears that the current American administration is trying very hard to look for ‘trouble’ with Iran.      Unable to find fault with ...

As 75 percent of Americans fear ‘Major war’ under Trump

1396/4/31 | 05:39
A vast majority of Americans are concerned about the United States’ potential involvement in a new major war—but most think military action is the wrong way to go about approaching international threats, according to an NBC poll released Tuesday.

Much of the anxiety appears to stem from reports of North Korea’s potential nuclear capabilities; 41 percent believe that Kim Jong ...

Trump’s son-in-law tried to get $500mn loan from Qatar

1396/4/24 | 05:39
Kushner – a real-estate developer like his father-in-law – purchased a tower at 666 Fifth Avenue in New York for $1.8 billion some years ago, but the building failed to generate enough money to cover its debts, according to The New York Times. More than a quarter of the office space in the building has remained vacant for several years, causing huge losses to Kushner Companies. In 2015, when Trump was launching his presidential campaign, Kushner and his father targeted Qatari billionaire Sheikh Hamad bin Abdullah Al-Thani (HBJ) as a potential ...

1396/4/9 | 05:39
The possibility of the US unilaterally attacking North Korea was a major concern just a couple of months prior, and while it’s dropped out of the headlines, the risk of a US attack hasn’t really gone anywhere, with National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster saying that a new set of options have been created for President Trump to respond to North Korea.   And when they say options, what they really mean are plans for military attacks, as McMaster confirmed every single one of the options prepared includes the US attacking North Korea ...

Trump Will Move to Quickly Deliver Smart Bombs to Saudi Arabia

1396/3/26 | 05:39
Saudi Arabia is heavily bombing Yemen, more or less constantly, and the bombs they drop don’t exactly grow on trees. The bombs, rather, come from US arms makers, and President Trump is looking to get more of them in Saudi hands as soon as possible.     The $110 billion arms deal with the Saudis is just part of the unprecedented influx of weaponry the Saudis are about to see from the United States, and today’s failed Senate vote was really the last obstacle trying to block the US from delivering more munitions to the Saudis ...

Trump is fostering chaos in the Middle East

1396/3/13 | 05:39
In his first “historical speech to the Islamic world” US President Donald Trump spoke about the “battle between good and evil”, noting that from Lebanon to Iraq to Yemen, “Iran funds, arms and trains terrorists, militias and other extremist groups that spread destruction and chaos across the region”.

Americans ask: Why is Saudi monarchy our friend, but not democratic Iran?

1396/3/3 | 05:39
The Los Angeles Times’ readership has questioned Washington’s claims of supporting democracy and social freedoms worldwide, asking why the US opts for amity and economic reciprocity with Saudi Arabia, an absolute monarchy, but antagonizes democratic Iran. The reactions were published in the paper on Tuesday under the title, “Iran just held an election. So why is the theocratic monarchy Saudi Arabia our friend?” The readers asked the reason why US President Donald Trump befriended a regime, which was defiant of what the US upholds ...

The end of Trump

1396/3/1 | 05:39
  The question is no longer whether there are grounds to impeach Donald Trump. It is when enough Republicans will put their loyalty to America ahead of their loyalty to their party.     Trump’s statements last week about his firing of former FBI director James Comey provide ample evidence that Trump is engaged in an obstruction of justice – a major charge in impeachment proceedings brought against Richard M. Nixon and Bill Clinton. It’s worth recalling that the illegality underlying Nixon’s impeachment was a burglary ...

Trump to Saudia: A new hope for ISIS

1396/2/26 | 05:39
    So, finally, the most unpredictable US president goes to the world’s most volatile region when it is suffering its worst catastrophe in living memory. But already it seems Trump has set himself an agenda that contradicts with itself as he prepares for his tour of Saudi Arabia and Israel.   So far everybody from the Levant to the Gulf had been holding their breaths. Saudi had even begun a soft rapprochement with Iran. But then the US state and defence secretaries, as if only to undo the Obama administration’s thaw with ...
