Tehran, IRNA - The following headlines appeared in English-language newspapers in the Iranian capital on Saturday, May 14, 2022:


-- Qatari emir Tehran trip carries message for regional states: Cleric

The Thursday visit by Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani to Tehran had a message for regional countries that the Persian Gulf littoral states should place their trust in “powerful” Iran as it is the Islamic Republic that will come to their rescue in times of hardship, not the United States, Britain and Israel.

-- Official censures U.S. for ‘lecturing others’ on human rights despite its dark record

An Iranian official slammed the United States for “daring to lecture others” on human rights, pointing to the oppression and abuse of the Native Americans in the country up until the past decades.
Kazem Gharibabadi, the Iranian Judiciary chief’s deputy for international affairs and secretary of the country’s High Council for Human Rights, made the remark in a late Thursday tweet in reaction to a federal study of Native American boarding schools that has identified more than 500 student deaths at the institutions so far.

-- Markazi Province: A land with rich tourism assets

The central Iranian province of Markazi has a great tourism potential and due to its special geographical location, it is able to host a large number of Iranian and foreign travelers, said Ali-Asghar Shalbafian, the deputy cultural heritage, tourism and handicrafts minister for tourism affairs.
Speaking on the sidelines of his visit to the province, he noted: “So far, the tourism economy has not got the attention it deserves in the province,” pointing out that efforts should be made to identify and introduce the tourism potentials of the region in the best possible manner.


-- Iraq Says Strikes Gas Deal With Iran

Iraq has agreed to pay $1.6 billion in debt to Iran by June 1 to secure a steady gas supply for power generation through the summer, its electricity minister said.
“We have reached agreement on supply in sufficient quantities.

During winter, Iraq will import between 10 million and 20 million cubic meters per day of Iranian gas, he added.

-- Iran-Qatar Set the Trend for Regional Cooperation

Iran’s growing political, economic, and cultural ties with the Persian Gulf states of Qatar and Oman (and to a lesser extent with Kuwait), provide an excellent model for regional cooperation, if only the other three members of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) – Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Bahrain – summon up the courage to reconsider their flawed policies that are serving the vested interests of the US, and the illegal Zionist entity.

Friday’s visit to Tehran of the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Aal-e Thani, at the head of a large delegation and his talks with senior Iranian officials on various issues, including the chronic question of Palestine, is a firm indication in this regard.

It was his second visit, following the one in January 2020, and he was granted an audience with the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, who pointed out the need for expanding Tehran-Doha ties to their full capacity.
