London, 25 May - The Iranian Regime has revealed that they consider their ballistic missiles programme to be non-negotiable and indicated that they will not give up the programme for anything.

Mohammad Bagher Nobakht, a spokesman for the Regime, told reporters on Tuesday: “The Iranian nation has decided to be powerful. Our missiles are for peace and for defence … American officials should know that whenever we need to technically test a missile, we will do so and will not wait for their permission.”

London, 24 May - The new President of the United States, Donald Trump, began his first overseas trip with a visit to Saudi Arabia. He next moved on to Israel, where he worked on partnerships that once seemed improbable. Both countries are allied with America, but the two have a tradition of being regional adversaries. However, both are concerned about Iran’s involvement in the conflicts in Syria and Yemen.

London, 8 May - The Consul General of Israel made a shocking statement about the Iranian Nuclear Deal on Sunday.

Dani Dayan gave a speech at The Jerusalem Post Annual Conference in New York, in which he said that while the nuclear deal was bad, it would be worse if Iran were complying with the deal.

While this may sound counterintuitive, Dayan remarked that the deal does not prevent Iran getting nuclear weapons altogether, it just slows their progress and gives them a green light to someday obtain nuclear weapons.

London, 23 May - Donald Trump has rightfully taken every opportunity to blast the Iranian Regime and its aggressive behaviour during his inaugural trip to Saudi Arabia and Israel, and Trump’s comments certainly appear to have unified the US allies in the region, who are constantly threatened by the Iranian mullahs.

Iran Focus: 

London, 8 May - Last month, the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced that Iran was complying with the 2015 nuclear deal which shocked many among the Donald Trump administration and further afield, especially considering Trump’s own statement that it was “the worst deal ever negotiated”.

London, 6 May - On Friday, Republican leaders of the House Oversight Committee said that an investigation is being initiated to look into claims that Obama’s administration undermined a US counterproliferation effort to foil Iranian weapon trafficking activities. The administration has been accused of jeopardising national security in an effort to convince Iran to sign the nuclear deal and to carry out a prisoner swap.

London, 16 May - A former CIA agent has said that he believes that Iran is aiding North Korea in its nuclear programme following the latest North Korean missile test.

On Sunday, North Korea launched a mid-range intermediate ballistic missile and it is believed that it could have the capability to reach U.S. military bases on Guam, which is why intelligence experts believe that the North Koreans and Iranians are collaborating on weapons development.

Iran Focus: 

London, 5 May - Pentagon officials saw more evidence of North Korea’s assistance when Iran tried to launch a cruise missile from a midget submarine earlier this week. Intelligence reports claim the submarine was the same type that sank a South Korean warship in 2010, which was Pyongyang designed.

London, 14 May - In a written testimony by Daniel Coats, US Director of National Intelligence, for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Thursday, he described the growing threat of Iran's missile program. “Iran's ballistic missiles are inherently capable of delivering WMD [weapons of mass destruction], and Tehran already has the largest inventory of ballistic missiles in the Middle East,” he wrote, adding, “We judge that Tehran would choose ballistic missiles as its preferred method of delivering nuclear weapons, if it builds them.” Coats also noted, “Iran continues to be the foremost state sponsor of terrorism.”

London, 27 Apr - An Iranian businessman has just been sentenced to a decade in prison in the United Arab Emirates for providing assistance with the nuclear program.

The court in the UAE handed the sentence over after the man was convicted of bringing an electric motor and other equipment to the country with the intention of using them to advance the Iranian nuclear program.

London, 10 May - Iran is preparing to launch two new satellites into space, according to Iranian military leaders, but American national security experts believe that this may just be a cover-up for the test-firing of advanced intercontinental ballistic missile technology.

The Iranian Communications and Information Technology Minister Mahmoud Vaezi announced the proposed launch on Monday.

London, 27 Apr - Iran managed to keep its nuclear program a secret for many years. Since it started it has never been halted.

Last week, the biggest organised opposition group, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), revealed details about the current developments in the nuclear program. The NCRI was basically able to provide evidence showing that the Islamic Republic was violating the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or the Iran nuclear deal as it is more commonly known as.

London, 10 May - The Iranian Regime tested a high-tech torpedo near the Strait of Hormuz on Sunday, according to US officials.

The Iranian missile, called Hoot, is supposed to be based on a Russian model (the Soviet-era Russian VA-111 Shkval) which is considered to be the fastest in the world.

London, 26 Apr - The Obama administration released seven Iranian prisoners (and stopped pursuing 14 more suspects) who were deeply involved in Iran’s missile and nuclear program, in order to secure the release of US hostages in Iran; according to Josh Meyer of Politico.

At the time, the prisoners (and fugitives) were presented as non-violent offenders who had merely violated the US’s economic sanctions on Iran; although considering that the Gulf nation is the world’s number one state sponsor of terrorism, surely breaking economic sanctions is bad enough.

Iran Focus 

London, 8 May - Thirteen US Senators have signed a letter calling for answers about the prisoner-swap scandal under the Obama administration in which seven Iranian prisoners in the US were exchanged for five US hostages in Iran.

The deal, which also allowed 14 fugitives to evade justice, was one of the most perplexing political deals in the US during Obama’s presidency as it may have jeopardised the non-proliferation effort to stop Iran from getting hold of nuclear weapons.

Iran Focus

London, 26 Apr - The Iranian Nuclear Weapons programme is still alive and well, despite reports to the contrary from the State Department.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) held a press conference last week, to unveil the new site of the Iranian nuclear programme, which neither the UN or the International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors have had access to.

Iran Focus 

London, 8 May - The House Oversight Committee has launched an investigation into the Obama administration for potentially undermining the U.S. counter-proliferation effort to thwart Iranian weapons trafficking networks, according to Politico.

Additionally, 13 Republican senators have demanded to know whether the Obama administration jeopardised U.S. national security as a result of the prisoner-swap scandal in which seven Iranian prisoners held in the US were exchanged for five US prisoners held in Iran.

Iran Focus

London, 26 Apr - Soon the US will once again begin ramping up pressure on Iran, which has lagged considerably over the past eight years.

While Donald Trump may not be quite ready to tear up the nuclear deal, which gave Iran considerable sanctions relief in exchange for stopping Iran’s nuclear weapons programme (which notably has not stopped the Iranian Regime’s programme at all), he may be ready to target the Gulf nation in other ways.
