‘Iran must end isolation’ 5.1.2015 Asian Age: International
Hassan Rouhani Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said Sunday that foreign investors should no longer be viewed as a threat and signalled his country’s decades-long isolation from the world economy could soon end. Speaking at an economic conference in Tehran, he said the Islamic republic would not give up its principles but it would be better placed to conclusively emerge from recession if it opened up. Iran is engaged in long-running negotiations with world powers aimed at a comprehensive deal over its disputed nuclear programme which, if successful, will likely result in an investment boom. A key point in any agreement would be the lifting of wide-ranging sanctions — imposed on Iran as punishment for its atomic activities — blamed for neutering its oil- and gas-rich economy. Mr Rouhani said Iran wanted “lasting and sustainable development” and if it was to escape the recent years of “constriction” caused by its foreign policy then change was necessary. “Our political life has shown we cannot have ...

A fine sense of drama 5.1.2015 Telegraph: Opinion
In an international scene unfolding not necessarily to India's advantage, a traditional constant is welcome and India's all-weather relationship with Russia is doubly appreciated when it is substantive rather than ceremonial. The Russian president, Vladimir Putin, has always possessed a fine sense of drama, and during his recent visit to India, he used this to project his country as a potential key factor in India's energy security, thereby adding a new dimension to his version of the erstwhile German Ostpolitik or Eastern Policy, as a supplement to Russia's existing Chinese linkages based on commerce and military cooperation. Putin's initiative was deftly steered and without fanfare. The president's use of the media has its effect in Russia, especially as seen in the course of the year-long Ukraine crisis, and his previous visits to India were not lacking in this touch, involving large media interaction and teleconferencing with audiences from different cities. On this occasion, however, such packaging ...
