PRESS PANORAMA

Tehran, July 20, IRNA -- The English language paper Iran Daily in its Press Panorama column to be published on Monday has reviewed several Persian newspapers:

Who benefits from impeachment?

Mardomsalari: Certain parliamentarians have no scruples about making up excuses to remove Science Minister Reza Faraji Dana from office.

Undoubtedly, MPs are entitled to impeach ministers, but do they have the right to deprive the ministry of elites and talented personnel?

Such a motion will exacerbate 'brain drain' and serve the interests of the West that bullies less developed nations.

Although the lawmakers have sworn the oath of allegiance to safeguard the rights of voters, a resolution on the floor to censure the science minister goes against their vows.

A large number of university lecturers and students have thrown their weight behind Faraji Dana, but legislators have given a cold shoulder to such a call.



Failure of nuclear talks

Vatan-e Emrouz: Unless the United States change its strategic criteria in talks with Iran, nuclear negotiations between Tehran and world major powers will remain unproductive.

The daily, which propagates hard-liners' discourse, has said it stood out a mile that nuclear talks between Iran and P+1 group (permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany) would be extended.

The paper has enumerated a number of reasons in support of its claim.

First of all the US considers a nuclear deal with Iran as a kind of punishment because White House officials claim Tehran has failed to comply with its nuclear obligations toward the international community in the last two decades.

Second, Washington spares no efforts to squeeze Iran's nuclear activities and prolong the process of reaching a permanent deal to achieve its own objectives.

Third, the Americans have no scruples about using the leverage of pressure against Iran. They seek to impose new round of sanctions on the Islamic Republic if negotiations fail.

Fourth, certain domestic elements help the US to exert more pressure on the country through media hype.



Formation of anti-US platform

Siasat-e Rouz: Regional and international developments have set the stage for establishing greater convergence between Iran and Russia.

Exorbitant US demands have further consolidated unity between the two neighbors that have been the targets of White House policies.

Before the collapse of the former Soviet Union, Russia and the US were the two hubs of superpowers, but Vladimir Putin helped the Kremlin play a constructive role in international developments.

The upbeat outlook has challenged US policies.

Moscow's unwavering support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, led to the failure of US plans in Syria.

Currently, Iraqi Prime Minster Nouri al-Maliki has Russia's unflinching support and this has posed a threat to the interests of the West in the Arab nation.

Likewise, all-out support for the Iraqi people to withstand the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL)—which is rooted in constructive approaches adopted by Tehran and Moscow—has helped the two states play a more crucial role in regional and international developments.

The Unites States has threatened to impose sanctions on Russia over Ukraine crisis, thus fueling tension between the two nations.

Iran has also been grappling with unfair embargoes since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Besides, Iran and Russia can establish a platform to fortify their hedge against the West threats.

Ongoing crises in Palestine, Syria, Iraq and Ukraine can help Tehran and Moscow thwart the plans of the White House.

The platform can involve states such as China, Kazakhstan, and other nations, whose stances are convergent with those of Iran and Russia, to break the US monopoly on international and regional developments.
