-- Iranian Navy’s Milestone Voyage into the Atlantic Ocean

The venture into the Atlantic Ocean for the first time by two ships of the Iranian navy has made the US regime lose sleep, although they are on a peaceful mission to friendly countries and have no intention on this particular voyage to approach the North American coast. The US, whose warships are illegally stationed in the coastal waters of many countries around the world, has no authority over the high seas and need not be apprehensive of the right to navigate, even the coasts of North America, by vessels of other countries – whether Iran, Russia, or China. So what is the fuss of the journey into the Atlantic of two Iranian navy ships, and their right to make calls on the ports of independent countries, including Venezuela?
Why is Washington threatening certain Latin American countries, such as Cuba and Venezuela, if they allow the Iranian ships to berth at their ports?

-- Rouhani Calls on Iranians to Participate in Election

“The denial of the administration’s clear achievements in the fight against economic sanctions and the coronavirus is the strategy of the opponents of Iran,” he said.
Rouhani touched on his administration’s battle with the cruel sanctions, saying a great deal of effort has been made by the Central Bank of Iran to ease the import of agricultural inputs.
