The Time For Popular Protests Has Come, Former Official Warns

In an interview with the state-run website Ruydad24, Jahanbakhsh Mohebbinia, a former member of the Iranian regime’s parliament said: “Governments that go to war against popular protests will fail… Whether we like it or not, the time of protests has begun.

Amid New Round of Nuclear Talks in Vienna, State-run Newspaper Warns Raisi About Playing Games

The state-run Hamdeli daily wrote: “The large delegation of representatives of the thirteenth administration, who are practically some simple messengers, led to the occupation of the expensive rooms of the Coburg Hotel in Vienna. As in the past, they would do nothing but to convey the views of the state, and this apparent uproar will be nothing more than noisy propaganda.”

Hamdeli added: “The slightest magnitude of political knowledge, as well as the necessity of avoiding illusions and self-aggrandizement, dictated by some think tanks made clear that without reaching a significant agreement in the talks, economic doors will remain virtually closed on Iran. Without resolving the issue of the JCPOA and opening the way for international relations such as Swift and FATF, even neighboring countries are not willing to establish full and straightforward relations with Iran. They are using the opportunity to increase their competitive distance with Iran. In this way, being pleased with the slightest help from China and Russia is like being a child who gives himself up to an opportunistic kidnapper striving for the sweet taste of a little candy.”

The state-run newspaper warned: “Over the past few months, Raisi has shown that he does not shy away from repeating the populist games of previous governments, such as Ahmadinejad’s administration. But there is little room to continue with these games.”
