Reuters | Iran, China agree $600-billion trade deal after sanctions

Iran and China agreed to expand bilateral ties and increase trade to $600 billion in the next 10 years, President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday during a visit to Tehran by Chinese President Xi Jinping.


Iran and China signed 17 accords on Saturday, including on cooperation in nuclear energy and a revival of the ancient Silk Road trade route, known in China as One Belt, One Road.

2016: The Year of the Great Middle East Cyberwar?

[...]

Although cyberwarfare is a relatively new phenomenon, Iran already has a history of conducting cyberattacks against its regional rivals during diplomatic crises. In retaliation for the Saudi government’s “crimes and atrocities” in countries such as Syria and Bahrain, in 2012 a group calling itself “Cutting Sword of Justice” launched a malware attack on Saudi Aramco – Saudi Arabia’s state oil company — that destroyed 30,000 computers, and shortly thereafter a similar virus struck Qatar-based gas company RasGas. From 2012 to 2014, Iran’s “Operation Cleaver” targeted companies in Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and 12 other countries in sectors “including oil and gas, energy and utilities, transportation, hospitals, telecommunications, technology, education, aerospace, defense contractors, and chemical.” Already, in the wake of Saudi Arabia and Iran severing diplomatic ties, unknown hackers have attacked key websites belonging to the Saudi Defense Ministry.

Iran has also employed foreign proxies to launch cyberattacks against countries opposing Tehran’s interests in the region’s various conflicts. The “Syrian Electronic Army” (SEA) has attacked Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and other countries known to be supporting Syrian rebel groups, targeting news networks such as Qatar’s Al Jazeera, Saudi Arabia’s Al Arabiya, and U.S. outlets such as the New York Times and Washington Post. It has sabotaged websites belonging to the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, and even hijacked President Obama’s Facebook and Twitter accounts. Similarly, last June the previously unknown “Yemen Cyber Army” released roughly half a million documents stolen from the Saudi Foreign Ministry in retaliation for the Saudi-led intervention in Yemen.

Iran wants euro payment for new and outstanding oil sales


"In our invoices we mention a clause that buyers of our oil will have to pay in euros, considering the exchange rate versus the dollar around the time of delivery," the NIOC source said.



Saddam and Qaddafi did not accept Dollars for their Oil .. :lol: .. they were f*cked

Not Iran .. Iran nailed it

Dollar a trap, short it

Iran doesn't care about Farakhan .. but US should very much care Farakhan in Tehran.

In that sense, above pic has more significance to "American Foreign Policy" thread than to Iran Thread

We Iranians were invaded by Greeks, Arabs, Mongols, and Turks, but we never lost our identity because foreign invaders would find a richer culture in Persians than that of their own.

Many countries, especially in SE Asia, have mandatory death penalties for drug trafficking, although they are mandatory upon conviction.

Not that I'd want to be at the mercy of any of their judicial systems.

Alternative would be to give "safe passage" to Afghan and Pakistan drug smugglers (maybe even charge a transit fee) taking Afghan drugs to Europe (and US) .. If American military does not care about drug cultivation in Afghanistan (could easily eradicate it), why Iran should (with high casualty of border-guards)

That would dramatically reduce the death penalty (90% of (mandatory) death penalty is for drug smugglers) but a disaster for Europe.

Iran, unfortunately, is between producer Afghanistan and consumer Europe.

Doc, you miss the point .. heart of the matter

If Iranian masses were unhappy with the election and the candidates

If so

The voter participation would not be 68 %

People could have stayed home and not vote, Mullahs could not force anybody to vote

Voting hrs had to be extended twice.


Mullahs very smart, they swim with the flow .. they know "first hand" what is cooking in the population .. even the smallest village has a Mosque & Mullah .. they part of the society and people, like fish in water.

Information you guys get either from "Mujahedin Khalgh" or from Israel .. all rubbish

Now, Iran # 1 tourist destination, why not visit Iran next time, and have "Iranian Rice" in Esfahan
"Shah Abbas Hotel" (now renamed Abbasi Hotel) :lol:



Please watch

"We believe that Moses and Jesus are great prophets.

If you don’t believe that, you are not Muslim.

We believe in Abrahamic religions.

We view them as brothers.

We as Muslims believe in Prophet Moses.

The Islamic Republic of Iran is the only country where religious minorities have the same freedoms, occupy high positions, are free to operate on the market, in the economy, and have their representatives in the parliament.

We consider ourselves first Jews, then Christians, and only after that, Muslims.”


We see the proof of these words literally outside the building, on the street.

On a regular weekday, at 8 pm there is a line in front of a movie theatre.

There are many screens showing different movies, but everybody wants to see the one about Solomon.

It premiered two weeks ago. The room is full. The movie is based on the Koran account about King Solomon, whom Muslims honor as Prophet Suleiman.

The story in the Koran is different from the biblical account. Israel’s trials are shown as a tragic and mystical story of a God-fearing community – and Muslim viewers genuinely sympathize with the suffering Jewish people.

"Jews are safe in Iran. That’s true. Nobody needs guards.

There has never been a single instance of anti-Semitism in Iranian society.

This phenomenon belongs to the European, Christian world.


There is no anti-Semitic sentiment in Iran.

We have no attacks on synagogues or cemeteries as happens in Paris.

Just so you know, there are 15 synagogues in Tehran,” the head of the hospital says.

To him, it’s a major indicator of freedom of religion.

I keep to myself the fact that Moscow, which has ten times more Jews than Tehran, has only four synagogues.

President Obama message to Iranians is 90% political .. from more than 4 minutes message less than 45 second is New Year message, the rest is political message to Iranian people

IMVHO, this should be in American Foreign Policy thread.
