-- Treats and tradition in Tehran’s oldest, tiniest teahouse

What is important is our determination to return to the talks, but those that are serious and guarantee the Iranian nation’s rights and interests,” Amir-Abdollahian said.

Iran and Venezuela have inked an oil contract to counter the sanctions the United States has illegally imposed on both nations’ oil exports.
