 Asia Times - Asia's most trusted news source for the Middle East
A five-man Iranian foreign ministry delegation, headed by the ministry's director for Persian Gulf affairs, Hossein Sadeqi, is in Najaf to assist in the crisis over the rebel leadership of cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, whose Shi'ite followers have been engaged in week-long battles with US-led occupation forces.
Officials in Washington confirmed that Britain had invited the Iranian delegation to help restore calm and security in Iraq, as, in the words of Mehdi Karroobi, the speaker of the majlis, or parliament, "it is obvious that Iran has strong influence in Iraq, where the people have traditional brotherly bonds with the Iranians".
Iranian foreign affairs minister Kamal Kharrazi said in Tehran hours after the delegation left for Iraq that "naturally, there are such requests from the US and Britain that we help improve the situation in Iraq, and we are making efforts in this regard.

 Asia Times - Iran feels the squeeze, again
On Saturday, the Iranian Foreign Affairs Ministry summoned the British and Argentine charges d'affaires in Tehran, calling on the United Kingdom for the "immediate release" of Soleymanpour and warning it "not to enter" games to which it is not a party.
Argentine Foreign Affairs Minister Carlos Ruckhauf, for his part, summoned Iranian charge d'affaires Mohammed Ali Tabataba'i, explaining that the Argentine government was not involved in the arrest request, a case, he said, that was being investigated by a judge and not the government.
Iranian and British judicial experts and lawyers say the Soleymanpour case may last a year before London decides whether to extradite him to Argentina or deport him to Tehran, in case he does not ask for political asylum in the UK.

Iranian Intellectuals and the West: The Tormented Triumph of Nativism.
Instead, the majority found in the West ideas of struggle, resistance, self-assertion, and patriotism that they wedded to pride in their own culture to create a kind of "nativism." This was a congenial intellectual outlook for those who rejected the imperial pretensions of the West, and it was able to accommodate both populism and Islamism.
He concludes with the hope that the nativist phase of intellectual development can be transcended as Iranians reassess their relationship to the rest of the world.

The Office of Iranian Affairs (OIA) is the reincarnation of the Office of Special Plans, "apparently housed in the same Pentagon offices inhabited by its predecessor and involving some of the same slimy personnel," Gary Leupp wrote May 29, 2006, in Dissident Voice.
The OIA is a special office created within the U.S. Department of State "to deal with foreign policy changes related to Iran and to promote a democratic transition in the Islamic republic," CNN's Elise Labott reported March 2, 2006.
The new office appears to be a division from the current Office of Arabian Peninsula and Iran Affairs [1] within the Bureau of Near Eastern and South Asian Affairs and is a revival of the State Department's Office of Iranian Affairs which existed in the 1960s and 1970s.

 Parsi: Iran Unlikely to Halt Nuclear Enrichment Unless the United States Agrees to Direct Talks - Council on Foreign ...
The Iranians went ahead with their enrichment, and I think people in the administration may have felt at that stage the United States would enter negotiations from a relatively weak position.
I've spoken to Iranian diplomats who say that if confidence-building measures are taken and talks are started, in a mutually respectful manner, then much of what was in those proposals will be on the agenda again from the Iranian perspective.
The ultimate Iranian goal would be if the United States agrees to talk and the United States agrees to resolve some of these issues diplomatically with Iran in a way that reduces the Iranian threat perception from United States.

 Salman Rushdie's Delusion, and Ours - article by Daniel Pipes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
The fact is that, whatever Teheran's diplomats might say, among the Iranian elite there is near-unanimous agreement that the edict against Rushdie is a permanent sentence, one which both constitutes government policy and at the same time is beyond the competence of government to affect.
According to the Iranian media, Khomeini admonished his successors before his death never to retreat from the hukm, no matter what the pressure: "It should not be permitted for this edict to become a diplomatic issue subject to negotiations." Artfully-worded statements to Western leaders notwithstanding, his heirs have faithfully followed his instructions.
The plain truth is that neither Foreign Minister Kharrazi nor, by extension, President Mohammed Khatami clearly speaks with authority for the government of Iran.

Britain has "protested strongly" at what it says is Iran's failure to protect the British embassy in Tehran after shots were fired at the mission for the second time in a week.
The shots come six days after a similar incident near the British mission in Iran's capital, amid bilateral tension between the countries after a former Iranian diplomat was arrested in Britain over the 1994 bombing of a Jewish center in Argentina that killed 85.
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said last week security had been beefed up around the compound and police were investigating the shooting, which he described as an "irresponsible act."
