Global campaign for de-dollarization 

April 4, 2023 - 23:7

The Kayhan newspaper dedicated its headline to the issue of de-dollarization in the world and wrote: A global uprising has begun to overcome the domination of the dollar, but the point to consider is that the wise leader of the revolution has been emphasizing the importance of this issue for years.

 For the last four decades, our country has been under siege of the American dollar, and for this reason, the Leader of the revolution has insisted on separating the country’s economy from oil revenues. He has also attracted the attention of the officials to the financial dominance of the enemy by promoting the keyword of economic war.

Iran: West’s strategic failure in Syria

Pointing to the quadrilateral meeting of Iran, Russia, Syria and Turkey in Moscow, the Iran newspaper wrote: “Another aspect that the Syrian peace talks are proving successful is those actors who have been pursuing their interventionist policies for years beyond the region are being pushed back. They have added to the complexity of the dimensions of the Syrian crisis.  Regardless of America’s goal of keeping military forces in oil-rich areas in order to benefit from rich oil resources, the main reasons for the American statesmen’s campaign in Syria should be found in Damascus’s close ties with Tehran and Moscow. Without a doubt, Syria is Iran’s main strategic partner and ally in the Middle East region, and at the same time, the Syrian government has had close relations with Russia for a long time. So, the West and its allies, who have not been able to persuade Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to distance himself from his strategic allies, now  they have found the only possible solution is to continue their interventionist policies and provoke military tensions in some areas in Syria.”

Sharq: Who is Mesabh Yazdi’s successor?

The Shargh newspaper speculated about Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi’s successor and wrote: “Among Mohammad Taqi Mesbah Yazdi’s students, one name stands out more than others in the field of political, economic, social and international comments. Seyyed Mohammad Mehdi Mirbagheri, who has been the head of the Qom Academy of Islamic Sciences for the last two decades, has been active in the country’s political environment for almost a decade. And this activity has been growing in a way that it can be said that based on his position in the media and his activity as one of the figures living in Qom, we are probably facing a theorist who has been following his teacher (Mesbah Yazdi) and is moving in the same direction as the head of the “Current Academy” that it has been Misbah’s favorite.

Fahrikhetgan: Criticism of yoghurt tweet 

 In a commentary, the Farhikhtegan newspaper discussed the recent tweet of Gholamhossein Karbaschi, a senior member of the reformist faction, and wrote: “The Western parties have repeatedly questioned and accused Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities at the Vienna negotiations with the aim of settling scores with Tehran. Of course, these accusations have been rejected many times even by the Atomic Energy Agency. Gholamhossein Karbaschi has now even passed beyond the positions of the agency and has theorized the lack of trust in Iran’s peaceful nuclear program in tandem with the anti-Iran claims of the United States and the Zionist regime. And by citing the yogurt bucket event, he has given them the right to not trust the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program. We should ask Mr. Karbaschi that if an individual recklessly throwing yoghurt (at two unveiled women) is a reason that Iran’s nuclear activities are not peaceful, what security and international messages will be received of daily armed killings in American schools?”

 It should be noted that after increasing criticisms, Karbaschi deleted his tweet.

Etemad: The reason behind Baku’s failure and anger

Etemad discussed the recent inimical positions of the Republic of Azerbaijan against Iran with Mohsen Pakayeen, the former ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Baku. Pakayeen considers Baku’s inability to achieve its goals after the 44-day war with Armenia as the main reason for the anger of the Azeri authorities. Pakayeen says: “Azerbaijani officials are angry because of the failure to achieve some of their regional goals. Baku thinks that the main obstacle to its failure to achieve its goals is Iran, which is a wrong analysis.  Azerbaijan’s goal after entering the 44-day war was to unyoke Karabakh.  The Islamic Republic of Iran has always supported the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan and the Leader of the revolution has said that all lands of Azerbaijan should be liberated.  The Islamic Republic of Iran has given maximum support to the Republic of Azerbaijan.”

 The former ambassador adds: “After the 44-day war, what was neglected in the Moscow agreement was the independence of Karabakh… Karabakh was not liberated, and its complete liberation depended on 5 to 10 years of long negotiations between Baku and Yerevan under the supervision of Moscow.”
