    By Saeed Sobhani

    What is Johnson afraid of?

    TEHRAN _ The British Foreign Secretary's recent visit to our country is a matter of varying dimensions. The reality is that Boris Johnson is currently in a difficult position. He has been criticized by many British politicians such as Jeremy Corbin, the leader of the Labor Party in recent weeks. Even some Boris Johnson parties in the conservative party have advised him to resign from his position. Under these circumstances, the British Foreign Secretary has traveled to Iran to discuss the security prosecutors, nuclear accords and regional issues with our country's authorities. What is certain is that Britain is guilty of any of these cases. In other words, Boris Johnson must be held accountable for any charges against his government.

    Fatal political talks for Merkel

    TEHRAN _ Recently, European leaders called on two top German politicians, Merkel and Steinmeier, to formulate a coalition government as soon as possible. The lack of a strong government in Germany has worried the European Union. Social Democrats and Christian Democrats are now entering a new stage in the formation of a coalition government in Berlin. Although the Social-Democratic Party has somewhat retreated from its previous position, a strong government will not be established in Berlin even if a coalition government is formed between the two Social Democratic and Christian Democrats.

    Iran’s Strategic policies toward Arab worlds

    TEHRAN _ Iran's relations with Arab countries have long been subject to change, tension, crisis, even war. Prior to the victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran, relations with Arab countries, especially their neighbors and, in particular, Iraq, were based on threat indicators. Iran was directly in the US-led Western-style camp and was part of the Western alliance system against the Soviet Union in the division of the Cold War, while Iraq in the East Camp Was led by the Soviet Union. Iran was at that time a regional mission that was counterbalanced by the expansion of the Soviet Union's influence to the south, in contrast to Iraq, advocating the expansion of Soviet influence in the region.

    TEHRAN _ Investigations on Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential election in the United States continue. Trump government officials believe that the investigation is going to strike at the current U.S. government and that U.S. security officials have no other goal. However, in the coming months, it seems that a new controversy in the American political and security environment will be created by raising issues in this regard. It is noteworthy that U.S. security agencies took advantage of Trump in the 2016 US presidential election campaign, and provided maneuvering over controversy over Hillary Clinton's controversial emails to defeat democrats in the election.

    Why Is Erdogan Angry?

    TEHRAN _ Recent statements by Turkish government officials against Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian government have again made the stark confrontation between Ankara and Damascus public. This conflict has lasted for years between the two neighboring countries. The support of Erdogan and members of the AKP from ISIS and the al-Nusra Front in Syria over the past years is not something that can be ignored. Turkish government authorities who have made a major and strategic mistake in protecting Takfiri terrorism in Syria, continue to make the same mistake in confronting the Syrian crisis. Recent remarks by the Turkish PM indicate Ankara is still not going to correct its misplaced approach toward Damascus.
