Iran influential in region, world: Jordanian journalist

Antalya, Dec 9, IRNA – Iran is not only a regional power, but also is an important player on the world scene, a Jordanian journalist told the Islamic Republic News agency (IRNA).

Today Iran is in the spotlight of the global audience and Arab nations in particular are eager to follow news from the Islamic Republic of Iran, Mamdouh Abu Al Ghanam told an IRNA reporter Saturday, on the sidelines of the 5th international Media Training Program underway in Antalya, Turkey.

Frankly and honestly speaking, I should say that Iran managed to vigorously proceed with its nuclear dossier and could guarantee its national interests, Mamdouh said.

Iran passed through a difficult time due to economic sanctions but the country finally embraced victory, he said.

The journalist from the Jordan Media Institute also said that Iran is an influential country both in the region and world.

Mamdouh expressed hope for further development of relations between Tehran and Amman.
