Iran: open for business again

AAN < 1 min

Le Monde diplomatique (English version), January 2014

Very interesting Article by the head of the Farsi version of the newspaper (which is available in print only as a supplement to Seda-ye Edalat journal, 60/6 rue Sarve, Ave Vali Asr, Tehran), but this version is accessible for subscribers only. A German version can be read in full online, here. The author argues that "the US and Iran have parallel strategic interests in Afghanistan and Iraq" and "both follow the developments in Pakistan with great concern", Tehran, however, is unhappy about the close US-Pakistani relationship at the same time. For the rebooting of mutual economic ties, "the large Iranian community in the US that never broke with the old homeland could be of help" and points to the interesting reports of Tehran's governmental policy think tank, link here.
