Manufacturing aircraft in country 

The Iran newspaper addressed the issue of manufacturing a domestic passenger plane. It said: A joint committee comprising of the Vice-Chancellor of Science and Technology, ministries of industries, defense, transport, with the Civil Aviation Organization in charge, is going to manufacture a passenger plane.

Of course, there are also knowledge-based companies and other working groups in this committee that are responsible for building and managing passenger aircraft.  Domestic passenger planes have 70 to 150 seats and according to the report by the Ministry of Defense, the steps for building the first plane has made good progress and passed various tests and is ready to fly.

Since the late 60s (1980s), training, military, and unmanned light aircraft have been made in the country.  And a passenger plane, named Iran 140, was made in the country with the participation of Ukraine but after Ukraine left the project, making a passenger plane with some new features was put on the agenda.  But at the beginning of the last decade, during the previous government, the plan was set aside.  

The reports by the Ministry of Defense indicates that the manufacturing of this aircraft has made good progress and is ready to fly. The aviation industry needs about 550 planes to fulfil the current demand. There are 3 plans for the purpose: to build planes, repair old one and import used planes.

Shargh: Reducing tension with Baku 

Shargh has written a commentary about reduction of tension between Tehran and Baku.  Political expert Ali Zare analyzes the volatile situation and the continuance of destructive presence of some actors and negative and tension-causing parameters in Tehran-Baku relations.

The analyst believes while the Republic of Azerbaijan is not currently taking steps in line with Israel’s policies due to its neighborhood with Iran, he warns that at any moment there is a possibility that Tel Aviv wants to trap the Republic of Azerbaijan in an unwanted tension with Iran.  

On the other hand, the analyst considers some border disputes, especially developments related to Karabagh and the issue of Zangezur Corridor are important factors that can renew tension between Tehran and Baku.  

Therefore, Zare admits that as long as these issues are not solved, we will see a sine wave in Iran-Azerbaijan relations, which may sometimes lead to a reduction in tensions and sometimes an increase in verbal and diplomatic conflicts. In this situation, the expert points to his previous statements and emphasizes that due to the necessity and neighborhood determinism, the Republic of Azerbaijan and Iran should use any things to strengthen political and diplomatic relations in order to prevent the occurrence of tension in their relations. 

Sobh-e-No: Rouhani is thinking to return 

In a report, Sobh-e-No has discussed Hassan Rouhani’s plan to return to power and wrote: Some people think that Hassan Rouhani is thinking of returning to power due to the economic situation in the country, but it seems that from the beginning he has not made a decision to let his rivals go uncontested and now he is trying to test again the chance that he doesn’t have.  In recent weeks, his moves have become more public, and some consider his candidacy for the winter parliamentary elections as serious. 

Rouhani’s first election move after leaving Pastor was his meeting with some journalists close to the reform front.  In the meeting, Rouhani tried to clarify his positions on two spheres: domestic and foreign.  On domestic issues, he claimed that the elections have become uncompetitive, and on foreign policy, he tried to blame his failure in managing the country’s economic affairs entirely on America and Trump’s withdrawal from the JCPOA.

Siasat-e-Rooz: Dimensions of the country’s diplomacy 

In its editorial, the Siasat-e-Rooz newspaper addressed the dimensions of the country’s diplomacy. It wrote: The holding of World Quds Day in many parts of the world showed that Iran’s ideas are spreading thanks to the coordination between hard and soft diplomacy.  

The active role of Iran with the presence of Foreign Minister Amir Abdollahian in the meeting of Afghanistan’s neighbors in Samarkand and the emphasis of the attendees on Iran’s role in achieving stability and security in this country is another manifestation of the successful regional performance of the diplomatic body, which is also complemented by the presence of Iran in the meeting to solve the conflicts between Turkey and Syria in coordination with Russia, which will be held at the ministerial level in the near future.  

The totality of what was mentioned about the performance of the diplomatic apparatus indicates that although there is still a lot of work to be done to compensate for past failures and reach the ideal point, the Foreign Ministry has shown that it has been able to achieve significant achievements with a pragmatic and result-oriented thinking and take steps to improve Iran’s regional and global status. 

Ham Mihan: Iran’s four conditions to revitalize JCPOA 

The Ham Mihan newspaper has covered Nasser Hadian’s interview with Der Spiegel.  In the interview, Hadian said about Iran’s four conditions to revitalize the JCPOA. He said: There are four main demands.  Iran’s first and absolute priority is to ensure the stability of the treaty so that no American president can withdraw from the nuclear agreement in the future just as President Donald Trump did in 2018.

One possible way is for Iran to remove its centrifuges and store them in a warehouse with enriched uranium kept in Iran. The second is a trigger mechanism that allows each signatory to the agreement to request a return of UN sanctions even if Iran fulfills its obligations under the agreement.  

Iran needs a consensus or majority of the six great powers to activate the mechanism, not just one country.  The third concern for Iran is to ensure that the implementation of the commitments of the Western powers is monitored by a supervisory institution. 

Tehran wants a committee consisting of experts and diplomats to investigate the adherence to the JCPOA agreement by the U.S. and Europe as well.  Even when the JCPOA was implemented, Iran did not receive all the economic benefits agreed upon. The fourth issue that has been discussed among the political circles involved in the nuclear deal in Iran is compensation for damages caused by the return of U.S. sanctions.  The government estimates that the sanctions have cost more than $240 billion for Iran.
