This is while only five participant economists cited the European debt crisis as the biggest risk to the US economy. On December 31, 2011, Washington imposed a new round of sanctions on Iran's financial and energy sectors seeking to penalize other countries for importing Iranian crude or doing business with its central bank. The EU followed suit by imposing similar sanctions on January 23, banning member states from importing crude oil from Iran or dealing with the country’s central bank. Iran's decision to impose countersanctions on the European countries, including halting oil exports to six European countries, has led to a hike in global oil prices, pushing gasoline prices in the US and the UK to record highs. The rising gasoline prices have become a major issue in the US presidential election campaign. Tehran has so far halted oil exports to France, Britain, Greece and Germany and is also considering halting crude sales to Italy. The US, Israel and some of their allies accuse Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear energy program. End/m ]]> Iran Thu, 12 Apr 2012 07:40:06 GMT Iran Disbands Sophisticated Israeli Terror Network Bfnews: In a statement issued Tuesday afternoon, the Iranian Intelligence Ministry said its forces "have discovered one of the biggest terror and sabotage networks of the Quds Occupying Regime (Israel) and protected cells of its operatives and arrested groups of criminal terrorists and mercenaries cooperating with them".

"No one has spoken about relations with the US," Firouzabadi said, adding, "One of the gentlemen (officials) has talked with reporters and reminisced about Imam (Khomeini)'s era, saying that he had given a letter to Imam in this regard (talks with the US) and Imam had rejected it." Reiterating that Rafsanjani's proposal belonged to the past and to Imam Khomeini's era over two decades ago, Firouzabadi added, "Imam disagreed with that proposal of Mr. Hashemi Rafsanjani and didn't act upon it; also after Imam's era this view (talks with the US) has never been approved by the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) and Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution (Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei) and has never been on the Islamic Republic's agenda." Firouzabadi stressed that the Supreme Leader is the only authority vested with the power of decision-making in this regard and the Leader has not yet taken any decision on holding talks with the US. "The US is moving heaven and earth to open the way of negotiations with Iran," he said, implying that Iran has the upper-hand when it comes to issues involving the US The United States and Iran broke diplomatic relations in April 1980, after Iranian students seized the United States' espionage center at its embassy in Tehran. The two countries have had tense relations ever since, but have shown willingness to attend talks to help resolve regional issues, including security in Iraq. Yet, the two countries have avoided talks on bilateral issues for the last thirty years. Obama White House in March 2009 tried to offer a so-called olive branch to Iran and repair strained ties of nearly three decades. Tehran, meanwhile, said it would only consider the promise after seeing practical changes in the US policies. But Obama in a sudden change of policy threatened to use nuclear weapons against Iran. The United States pledged never to use nuclear weapons against the states that comply with the Non-Proliferation Treaties (NPT) as part of a review of nuclear arms strategy. But Obama's pledge left open a nuclear strike against countries that have signed the global NPT but stand accused of violating its terms. Obama, in an interview with the New York Times at the time, said outright that the loophole would apply to "outliers like Iran and North Korea" that the US believes are developing nuclear weapons. In response, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad lashed out at Obama for his threatening remarks against Iran, and said Obama's comments indicated his lack of experience. President Ahmadinejad said that American leaders still act like cowboys and like heroes in Western movies, "Whenever there is a problem, they take out their guns." End/m ]]> Iran Mon, 09 Apr 2012 12:24:35 GMT
