Headlines in Iranian English-language dailies on July 28

Tehran, IRNA – The following headlines appeared in English-language newspapers in the Iranian capital on Thursday, July 28, 2022:


-- Leader: Enemies targeting people’s faith by spreading uncertainty

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said today’s battlefield is that of soft war, warning ‎that the enemies seek to penetrate people’s “strong fortress of faith” and destroy it through spreading uncertainty.

Ayatollah Khamenei, who was making the remarks in an address to a gathering of the country’s Friday prayer leaders, called on them to confront such hostile moves by the ill-wishers, as an important mission, khamenei.ir reported. ‎

-- Prospect of thaw in Tehran-Cairo relations

In October of last year, the director general of the Iranian Foreign Ministry's Middle East and North Africa Department, Mir-Masoud Hosseinian said, “Efforts to improve relations with Egypt are underway, albeit the process evolves slowly.”
A year has passed since the Iranian official’s statement, and it seems that the process of Tehran-Cairo rapprochement has picked up speed. However, holding open talks between the foreign ministers of the two countries is still a long way away. What matters is that during the past year, the officials of Iran and Egypt have not taken antagonistic positions against each other and instead spoke of their desire to normalize relations. What is more, some media outlets claimed that Iranian and Egyptian delegations have met a number of times and held talks, although it was neither corroborated nor refuted by the authorities.

-- Iran to share ideas on JCPOA talks conclusion: Chief negotiator

Iran’s top negotiator Ali Baqeri Kani said Tehran will share its ideas on how to conclude stalled Vienna talks, after the European Union’s foreign policy chief said he had proposed a new draft text to revive the 2015 nuclear deal, knowns as the JCPOA.
In an Op-Ed in the Financial Times on Tuesday, EU’s Josep Borrell, who coordinates the talks, said his “text addresses, in precise detail, the sanctions lifting as well as the nuclear steps needed to restore the JCPOA.”


-- Mafia of Western Powers Always Planning to Hit Iran

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Khamenei said Wednesday the core of the identity of Western civilization is separation of religion from progress.
“With the slogan of religion, the Islamic Republic not only preserved itself, but with the progress of Iran, it challenged the long-term efforts of the Westerners to make religion and politics incompatible, so the mafia of the Western powers, headed by the Zionists and their capitalists who showcase is America, is angry at this brilliant truth, and constantly planning to strike the Islamic Republic,” he said.

-- Trump: U.S. Now a ‘Beggar Nation’, a ‘Cesspool of Crime’

Donald Trump returned to Washington on Tuesday for the first time since leaving the White House 18 months ago, delivering a fiery speech sprinkled with severe criticism of President Joe Biden, blaming him for the country’s ills.
“We are a nation in decline,” he said in a 90-minute address to the conservative America First Policy Institute, echoing many of the themes of his victorious 2016 campaign, including illegal immigration and crime. “We are a failing nation.”

-- Suddenly, Europe Not Strong But Dependent

Russian energy giant Gazprom drastically cut gas deliveries to Europe via the Nord Stream pipeline on Wednesday to about 20 percent of its capacity, German authorities said.
The Russian state-run company had announced Monday that it would choke supply to 33 million cubic meters a day -- half the amount it has been delivering since service resumed last week after 10 days of maintenance work.


-- Iran galvanizes regional diplomacy amid Israeli bluster

In a rare diplomatic move, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian spoke over the phone with five counterparts from five Arab countries amid growing Israeli bluster against Iran. 

Amir Abdollahian's calls list included the foreign ministers of the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, and Iraq. The calls came at a time when Israel continues to drive a wedge between Iran and its Arab neighbors after the recent controversial visit of U.S. President Joe Biden to Israel and Saudi Arabia. While Israel sought to portray the visit as a major step toward normalization with Saudi Arabia and coalition-building against Iran, the Arab countries of the region showed little interest in getting on board. 

-- Expansionist NATO is source of insecurity

As a military entity that claims it wants to establish sustainable security in the world, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization or NATO is seemingly seeking to spread its influence all around the world.

-- Leader: Western powers are mafia

On the occasion of the anniversary of the first Friday prayers organized after the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei met with Friday prayer leaders from across the country on Wednesday.

During the meeting in the Imam Khomeini Hussainiyah, the Leader explored the identity of the Western civilization, noting, “The core of the identity of Western civilization is separation of religion from progress. The Islamic Republic of Iran has invalidated this 200 to 300-year-old claim. The Islamic Republic started with the slogan of religion and it has progressed. This has enraged the West.”
