Iran's June 14 elections are expected to produce a president loyal to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and not improve prospects for an end to the country's nuclear standoff with the West or its support for President Bashar Assad's embattled regime in Syria.
Iran has rushed to the defense of its regional ally, Syria, and vowed Israel will regret its "latest aggression" — the airstrikes over Syria last week.
Syrian President Bashar Assad made his first appearance on state TV in nearly three weeks Tuesday in a show of solidarity with a senior Iranian envoy even as the U.S. secretary of state urged stepped up international planning for the regime's collapse.
Proposals from both Iran and the group of six world powers will be on the table at the next round of talks in Moscow next week, not just the West's demand to halt Iran's highest-level uranium enrichment, Iran's top nuclear negotiator said Wednesday.
The head of the U.N nuclear watchdog, in Tehran on a key mission that could lead to the resumption of probes on whether Iran secretly has worked on a nuclear weapon, said Monday that he had met with Iranian leaders amid a "good atmosphere."
Iran has proposed a new round of talks about its controversial nuclear program with the six world powers, the country's top nuclear negotiator said Saturday.
Iran wants to use a new round of talks on its nuclear program to discuss its rights as a nation instead of Western fears that it's building a nuclear bomb, according to confidential letters obtained Wednesday by the Associated Press.
Six world powers held their first talks with Iran in more than a year Monday, pressing Tehran to focus on the need to diffuse fears that its nuclear activities could be harnessed to make weapons.
Iran welcomes nuclear talks with the United States and other countries, Tehran's top nuclear negotiator said Monday.
Mr. Jalili promised that Iran would not allow a Western attack against Syria, The Associated Press reported.
Jalili, the secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, promised Iran would stand by Syria against its international "enemies" — a clear reference to the rebels' Western backers and others such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
