Tehran, June 3, IRNA - The following headlines appeared in English-language newspapers in the Iranian capital on Thursday:


-- Rouhani: No one in Iran opts for confrontation with world

President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday no one in Iran welcomes confrontation with the world.
“Today, everyone is proud of constructive interactions with the world and no one welcomes confrontation,” Rouhani said at a cabinet session in Tehran, in an apparent reference to statements made by some of candidates running for Iran’s presidential election due on June 18.

-- Iran: Participants in Vienna talks agree issues of dispute resolvable

Iran’s top negotiator said there are still sticking points in the Vienna talks on the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal between the Islamic Republic and world powers, but all parties agree that the issues of dispute are not irresolvable and that they could be worked out.
Speaking ahead of the latest round of talks between the remaining parties to the deal, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Wednesday, Abbas Araqchi said “disagreements have reached a point, where all [participants] believe that it is not that they cannot be solved.”

-- OPEC+ sticks to plan to ease supply cuts through July

OPEC+ oil producers agreed to stick to the existing pace of gradually easing supply curbs through July, as they sought to balance expectations of a recovery in demand against a possible increase in Iranian supply.
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies – known collectively as OPEC+ -- decided in April to return 2.1 million barrels per day (bpd) of supply to the market during May through July as it anticipated demand would rise despite high numbers of coronavirus cases in India, Reuters reported on Wednesday.


-- Presidential Race Begins to Gather Steam

With less than three weeks left to the 13th presidential election in Iran, the race is getting tighter among the seven candidates, who are given equal airtime on Iran’s national television to outline their programs.
Outgoing President Hassan Rouhani will hand over power with a host of unresolved issues, foremost the economy.

-- Imam Khomeini’s Dynamic Concept of Wilayat-e Faqih

We are on the threshold of the 32nd anniversary of the passing away of the Father of the Islamic Revolution, whose immortal legacy continues to guarantee the independence of Iran and the dignity of the Iranian people.
Seyyed Ruhollah Musavi al-Khomeini, whom the grateful nation and world Muslims affectionately called ‘The Imam’ (not to be confused with the Twelve Infallible Imams of Prophet Muhammad’s [SAWA] Blessed Household, the Ahl al-Bayt), was indeed a Godsend Leader.

-- Report Finds Institutional Racism in U.S. Military

The Virginia Military Institute has tolerated and failed to address institutional racism and sexism and must be held accountable for making changes, according to a state-sanctioned report released Tuesday.
The 145-page report, put together by an independent law firm at the request of the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia, states that “racial slurs and jokes are not uncommon” and “contribute to an atmosphere of hostility toward minorities.”


-- Bibi wraps up political life with hapless campaign of hype against Iran

In an effort to cover up Israel’s intelligence failures in Iran, the new Mossad chief vowed to quash Iran’s nuclear program regardless of the international community’s engagement with Iran, a position already been taken by the former spymaster of Israel but failed to make any progress in putting a halt to Iran’s nuclear activities. 

-- Windmills of Sistan-Baluchestan nearer to UNESCO status

Sistan-Baluchestan is further moving towards inscribing its ancient windmills on the UNESCO list as commencing an aerial mapping project as a preliminary stage.

“We are completing a dossier for a selection of Asbads (windmills) of the province for a [possible] UNESCO registration… and during the recent months, this process has been accelerated,” deputy provincial tourism chief Mansoureh Molla'elahi said on Tuesday.

-- Half a century of Iran's ecosystem protection

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Department of Environment (DOE), coinciding with World Environment Day, which is celebrating half of a century of protecting the environment.

The environment and biodiversity are the valuable heritage that humans have borrowed from previous generations and should pass on to future generations, but in the meantime, human extravagance has endangered this heritage so that many plant and animal species are in danger of extinction.
