    The battle before the United Europe

    TEHRAN - The power of anti-European, anti-migration movements in the European Union is increasing day by day as a result of the financial, economic and migration crisis.

    Independent European army: A dream which will never come true 

    TEHRAN - It has been a rather long time that politicians like the French President Emmanuel Macron, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, didn't speak of the formation of an "Independent European Army." This is doubling the assumptions on the cross-sectional and reactionary nature of this idea by European authorities.

    TEHRAN - Marc Finaud, the former French Foreign Ministry spokesman, says that “the reasons why France and Germany saw an interest in developing further EU strategic autonomy were related to the apparent reduced American interest in transatlantic solidarity, and the prospect of the United Kingdom leaving the EU, because the UK was one of the two leading military powers in Europe but always opposed any progress towards a ‘European army’.”

    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.”.

    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).

    Europe's Hollow Threats

    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.
