Headlines in Iranian English-language dailies on April 25

Tehran, IRNA - The following headlines appeared in English-language newspapers in the Iranian capital on Monday, April 25, 2022:


-- Iran crowned Asian freestyle wrestling champion

A total of eight medals across 10 weight classes saw Iran dominate the freestyle contests of the Asian Wrestling Championships in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia – the 29th title, and fourth in succession, for the Asian powerhouse since the competition was first introduced in 1979.
Iran topped the freestyle table with 201 points, with India finishing as the runner-up on 152 points, courtesy of one gold, as well as three silver and bronze medals apiece.

-- Normalization of relations has not benefited Palestinians

Bennett’s cabinet no different from Netanyahu’s

Tensions have risen in Palestine in recent days. After a few martyrdom-seeking operations were carried out in the occupied territories, Israeli forces stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in mid-April and arrested and injured a great number of Palestinians. The events happened while several Arab countries were normalizing their relations with Israel. Therefore, it seems that the normalization of relations has not benefited Palestinians in the slightest. On that, we had an interview with Mehdi Shakibaei, an expert in Middle East affairs. Shakibaei particularly follows the developments related to Israel. He maintains the Zionists know that the continuation of tensions is not in their favor.

-- Afghan terror attacks meant to sow discord: Muslim assembly

 The World Assembly of Islamic Awakening strongly condemned a recent wave of bomb attacks in Afghanistan, warning that such terrorist acts aim to stoke tensions among ethnic and religious Afghan groups and spread Islamophobia.
“Certainly, such actions are planned to create tension and wage ethnic and religious wars, launch massacre and killings of Muslims, and as a result, portray an unrealistic image [of Islam] and [spread] Islamophobia,” the assembly said in a statement on Saturday.


-- The American Eagle  Permanently Declawed

Last night we marked the 3rd and final phase of the alternate Grand Nights of Destiny (Laylat-al-Qadr) with recitation of the Holy Qur’an, supplications, and earnest prayers in the Divine Court and full confidence in the Infinite Mercy of the Lord Most High for continuation of the success He has ensured for the Islamic Republic over the past 42 years in the face of the most intricate plots of the satanic US and its devilish minions, who have always bitten the dust despite their spree of cowardly murders and economic terrorism.

-- U.S. Wades Deeper Into Ukraine War

Ukraine was to ask U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin for more powerful weapons during an expected visit by the officials to Kyiv on Sunday.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said his country would overcome “dark times,” in an emotional address at Kyiv’s 1,000-year-old Saint Sophia Cathedral to mark Orthodox Easter as fighting in the east overshadowed the religious celebrations.

-- Report: Iran Sent Maps of Nuke Stores to Zionists

Iran has sent the occupying regime of Israel “photos and maps of Israeli nuclear weapons stores” through a European mediator, an Iranian source said.
Al Jazeera quoted an unnamed source as saying: “Tehran had sent to Israel, through a European country, photos and maps of the Israeli nuclear weapons stores,” adding that “most of the pictures are terrestrial and not satellite.”


-- Biden internal weakness impedes JCPOA revival

Despite some European efforts to get the stalled talks in Vienna restarted, chances of resuming the talks remain low due to never-ending political bickering in the United States.

The talks over reviving a 2015 nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), came to a standstill in early March after all technical issues were addressed. Enrique Mora, the EU coordinator of the talks, said at the time that there would be no expert-level and formal meeting and that it was time to make political decisions to conclude the talks. 

-- Iranian president cautions about spread of threats against Afghans, neighbors

Following a series of criminal terrorist explosions in schools and mosques across Afghanistan, which have killed and injured a large number of Afghans, Ebrahim Raisi, Iran’s President and chief of Supreme National Security Council, issued a message warning about the spread of threats against the Afghan people and nations in the region. While strongly denouncing the recent terrorist acts in Afghanistan, Raisi emphasized the importance of ensuring the safety of all Afghans, particularly at schools, mosques, and religious centers.
