    Wait and contemplate for a second

    TEHRAN – Like it or not, the story of liberal democracy in the West has often been unjust and inhumane. You haven’t made a mistake if you call it “no human rights.”

    Terror business in Macron’s style; Riyadh pretending to fight terrorism

    TEHRAN - In an exclusive interview with FRANCE 24 and RFI, French President Emmanuel Macron said: “It is incorrect to state that Saudi Arabia is important economically to France in any area. With Saudi Arabia and the UAE, we have a cooperative relationship based on the whole truth and clarity, but it’s a strategic tie. The fight against terrorism goes hand in hand with these two countries.”.

    Trump; the Symbol of America's Isolation in the World

    TEHRAN - The president of the United States, who came to power in 2016 with the slogan of "Reviving Washington's Power", has become the messenger of failure and defeat of his country in the West Asian region and in the international system. The U.S. numerous military and political defeats in countries such as Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Lebanon were so outstanding that there's no way Trump can brag about his achievements in the region.

    U.S.-China relations worsens

    TEHRAN – U.S.-China relations worsened during Trump's presidency. Of course, there were disagreements between Beijing and Washington over both security and cyber-crimes during the presidency of Barack Obama, but the emergence of trade and economic disputes in bilateral relations should be analyzed "beyond a simple controversy".

    TEHRAN - In his recent remarks, Donald Trump said that if he wasn't at top of the U.S. political and executive equations, Iran would capture the Middle East (West Asia)!

    The relation between Ahvaz terrorist attack and the White House

    The martyrdom of some of our compatriots in the Ahvaz terrorist attack hurt the hearts of all Iranians. The crimes committed by the United States, its western allies, and its Arab pieces in Ahvaz can be analyzed from different dimensions. What's important in this regard is "finding the origin of this attack," and putting together the puzzle pieces that are set by the United States of America.

    Macron's Anti-Iran Mission

    French President Emmanuel Macron continues to play an invisible, but uninterrupted game on the U.S. ground. In August 2017, an agreement was reached between the presidents of France and the United States on "changing the content of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action". The changes were supposed to cover the four controversial issues (the removal of so-called Sunset clauses, inspection of Iranian military sites, the inclusion of Iran's missile capability in the JCPOA and limiting Iran's power in the region).

    TEHRAN - Overcoming the current president of the United States has turned to the main goal of the Democrats in the United States. American Democrats who have been isolated in the last two years, and lost the White House, the House of Representatives, the Senate, and many governorates, are now planning to win the Congress elections. On the other hand, the public dissatisfaction raised over the performance of the U.S. President has given hope to the Democrats for winning the midterm elections.

The evidences suggest that French President, Emmanuel Macron, is once again planning to get involved in a "predetermined game" over bringing up the issue of making a "complementary agreement" regarding the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action at the United Nations General Assembly, and then ask Washington to return to the nuclear deal if Iran agrees to restrain its missile and regional capabilities!

    Although there has recently been lots of controversies on issues such as developing an "independent payment system" Europe and a "pseudo-swift structure" to maintain the nuclear deal with Iran, many analysts and experts in economic affairs believe that there's no real intention to actualize this idea among the EU authorities. In the meantime, there are deterrent factors that have hampered European independence from the United States, and it seems that these factors are now highlighted under the presidency of Donald Trump.
