01/13/2018 15:08:56
Dubai. 13th of January. INTERFAX - The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) unit prevented terrorists from attempting to import explosives from Pakistan to destabilize the situation in the country, the report said on the website of the IRGC on Saturday.

"The terrorist group tried to import a batch of explosive devices into Iran in an attempt to carry out sabotage activities, create a dangerous situation and stir up riots inside the country," the report said.

A batch of explosives, suicide belts and equipment intercepted at the border were liquidated in Seravan in the southeast of Iran near the border with Pakistan, the report said.

Iranian-Indo ChahBahar Port and road/rail link into Afg.and Central Asia will not be affected regardless of any US pressure, both nations supposed to have decided.Trump has also given his European allies 120 days to get Iran to give in further on is N- programme, which it said it would never do.So let's see 4 months from now.

Why are young Iranians demanding the return of the Pahlavi dynasty? Media-savvy exiles in Europe. http://foreignpolicy.com/2018/01/12/a-l ... ign=buffer

lacklustre and boring state TV of Iran has given way to dozens of Iranian channels being operated from abroad (esp London). Many relay how life & time was in pre revolution era (before 1979). Young people associate a liberal Iran with Pahlavi dynasty rule that is what the article is about.

Iran's Rouhani to visit India this week

TEHERAN (AFP) - Iran's President Hassan Rouhani will visit India this week for three days, local media reported on Monday (Feb 12).

Rouhani is due to leave for India on Thursday to discuss "the latest regional and global developments", the semi-official ISNA news agency said.

He was invited by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year, ISNA said.

India and Iran have collaborated on key projects, most notably the Chabahar port in southeastern Iran that was inaugurated in December.

The port has been touted as a way for India to establish trade routes that bypass its rival Pakistan, but the project has seen multiple delays.

India has been a key purchaser of Iranian oil and gas, and maintained trade ties even as international sanctions were imposed on Iran over its nuclear programme between 2012 and 2016.

However, there have been tensions in the relationship, with the Indian media reporting frustrations over delays in awarding a contract to develop a major gas field known as Farzad B in the Gulf.

That led India to announce it was reducing its oil imports from Iran in protest in March 2017, leading Teheran to say it was restricting credit lines to India.

The two countries have nonetheless sought to move beyond the spat, and have continued to seek partnerships, with India signing a preliminary agreement last month to help expand Iran's rail network, including expanding rail links to Chabahar.

"The Israeli military said an Iranian drone it shot down over the weekend was based on an American stealth drone that was intercepted by Iran six years ago.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/12/middleea ... index.html

Interesting how they've maintained F4s and F-14s in spite of sanctions. They also seem to have become adept at making assault rifles.

Maybe we should tie with them

Or maybe we should support our own industries! The Iranians have not reached the moon or Mars yet like us.

Iran have surprised and surpassed expectations with their local military industry churning out local weapons for all 3 services and its RGs too.This in the face of total sanctions from the US/West meant to protect Israel, and the Sunni/ Wahaabi terrorist kingdom the KSA. How they've managed to keep their legacy US aircraft, etc. flying is a great mystery.After the N-sub deal was signed, expect more Ru and Chin eqpt. arriving.

I see no major news about rouhani visit to India. Looks like a rooh visited us in dark of the night and nobody wants to talk about it.
This could be a barometer of Indian Iranian relationship after sanctions were lifted, Nothing to talk about except for chabahar.
