FM Zarif warns: Iran may leave the NPT

On 22 April 2018, newyorker.com writes that the Iran nuclear deal—the most significant non-proliferation agreement in more than a quarter century, whether you like the terms or not—is perched on the edge of a diplomatic cliff.

Risk of war between Iran and Israel in Syria

Risk of war between Iran and Israel in Syria

On 15 April 2018, Thomas Friedman wrote in the nytimes.com: “SYRIA-ISRAEL BORDER, Golan Heights — Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Syria is going to explode. I know, you have heard that one before, but this time I mean really explode.
