    by Philip Lenczycki   China and Iran agreed to strengthen military ties during talks in Tehran on Wednesday, according to Chinese state-run media. China’s Defense Minister Wei Fenghe met with Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi in Tehran for high-level talks, where the parties pledged to deepen counter-terrorism cooperation ostensibly to further security and stability in the Middle East, Xinhua News reported Thursday. Wei guaranteed China would support Iran’s national sovereignty and dignity and expressed his nation’s intention to further develop their nation’s military relationship, according to the Chinese state-run media report. The bilateral talks come just months after the two authoritarian nations struck the Iran-China 25-Year Cooperation Program in January, which established a “comprehensive strategic partnership” and detailed plans for coordination in political, cultural, and security areas, according to an announcement from the Iranian government. Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps commander Mohammad Bagheri and Defense Minister Mohammad-Reza Gharaei Ashtiani also held formal discussions with Wei on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press. “Wherever the U.S. has had military presence, it has created waves of insecurity, instability, rifts, pessimism, war, destruction and displacement,” Ashtiani told...

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s state television reported Wednesday that the country’s former firebrand president will run again for office in upcoming elections in June. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reportedly marched accompanied by supporters to a registration center at the Interior Ministry where he filled out registration forms. Ahmadinejad in recent years has tried to polish his hardline image into a more centrist candidacy, criticizing the government for mismanagement. The Holocaust-denying Ahmadinejad has previously been banned from running for the presidency by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in 2017, although then, he registered anyway. A constitutional watchdog, the Guardian Council ultimately disqualified him then. Khamenei says he will not oppose the nomination of any candidate, although the electoral council may still block Ahmadinejad’s candidacy. In either case, the populist’s return to the political scene may energize discontent among hard-liners who seek a tougher stance against the west — particularly Israel and the U.S. Iran opened registration on Tuesday, kicking off the race as uncertainty looms over Tehran’s tattered nuclear deal with world powers and tensions remain high with the West. President Hassan...

    DUBAI (Reuters) - An Iranian government newspaper warned on Tuesday that overly radical actions in the nuclear wrangling with the West may lead to the country's isolation after Tehran ended snap inspections by United Nations inspectors. Iran's envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Kazem Gharibabadi, said it had ended implementation of the so-called Additional Protocol at midnight (2030 GMT) on Monday. The agreement allowed the IAEA to carry out short-notice inspections. The state-run daily newspaper Iran criticised hardline lawmakers who protested on Monday at Tehran’s decision to permit “necessary” monitoring by U.N. inspectors for up to three months, saying this broke a law passed by parliament in an apparent effort to pressure the United States to lift sanctions. The law requires ending snap inspections by the U.N. nuclear watchdog from Tuesday if sanctions are not lifted. "Those who say Iran must take swift tough action on the nuclear accord should say what guarantee there is that Iran will not be left alone as in the past... and will this end anywhere other than helping build a consensus against Iran?"...
    (CNN)Iranian conservative cleric Ayatollah Mohammad-Taqi Mesbah Yazdi died in Tehran on Friday, according to Iran's state-run Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA). The Imam Khomeini Educational and Research Institute, which Mesbah Yazdi headed, said he had been hospitalized over the past few days with a disease to his digestive system. The prominent cleric played a major part in the 1979 uprising that overthrew the Western-backed Shah of Iran, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, according to Iran's state-run Press TV. Mesbah Yazdi was seen as a hardliner and anti-West in general, including holding anti-US positions. An outspoken critic of a liberal press, he was known to have ratified crackdowns on domestic opposition, feminism and gender equality. According to regional experts, he was a spiritual mentor to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the former Iranian President who served from 2005 to 2013.

Iran's semi-official Mehr news agency said Mesbah Yazdi was close to the country's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Mesbah Yazdi was a member...

    The man tapped to become President-elect Joe Biden’s national security adviser knocked aspects of President Trump’s foreign policy in 2017 when he was interviewed by a state-run media outlet in China. Jake Sullivan, who served as Biden’s national security adviser during his time as vice president, worked in the State Department and as a senior policy adviser to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. He criticized Trump’s opposition to the Iran nuclear deal, warned that the administration might exercise military force against North Korea and weighed in on U.S.-China trade relations. “I think that China and the rest of the region should be prepared for the possibility, not the certainty and maybe not even the likelihood, but the distinct possibility that the United States would use military action on North Korea,” he said at one point.
