tudehAs had been expected for months, Donald Trump, the US President, announced in a speech on Friday 13 October his administration’s new strategic approach towards the Islamic Republic of Iran. Although Donald Trump was expected to address the issue of Iran's compliance under the JCPOA nuclear deal - that was signed between Iran and 5+1 countries in July 2015 - his words in fact comprehensively redefined the new strategy for the United States in terms of its future of relations with Iran, the balance of power in the Middle East, as well as how the United States will interact with the world including its European allies.

tudehWe reproduce the editorial article of »Nameh Mardom«, Central Organ of the Tudeh Party of Iran, No. 1029, published on 10 July 2017:

At a time when political developments are taking place at a rapid pace in the Middle East while imperialism and the regional reaction are hatching dangerous plans to change the political geography of the region, any kind of conflict and military clash around the borders of Iran - under any pretext whatsoever- will threaten the territorial integrity and stability of the country.

Iraqi Communist PartyThe Political Bureau of the Iraqi Communist Party issued the following statement on 9th July 2017 congratulating the Iraqi people on the great national victory of the liberation of the city of Mosul from terrorist Daesh:

Mosul is now free, with the declaration of Iraq’s victory and defeat of the so-called "Islamic state”. Iraqis are marking a great victory, clearing their land of the plague of Daesh.

Tudeh Party of IranTudeh Party of IranThe presidential election in Iran is taking place today, 19 May. Although there are a lot of commentaries in the media both in Iran and internationally about the outcome of this election, one key point is clear and undisputed - that none of the opposition forces are allowed to take part in this election.

The candidates that have been approved and shortlisted are all from different factions of the ruling regime and thus the overall outcome of the election is a foregone conclusion, i.e. a candidate totally committed to continuing the same strategic direction of the theocratic regime will be appointed. The final “victor” of the election will be the one selected by Ayatollah Khamenei, the supreme religious leader, based on the judgement as to whether he is the one that the regime considers as having the key qualities to go on and secure its survival in the current complex situation both at home and internationally.

Tudeh Party of IranTudeh Party of IranAccording to reports currently circulating, as a result of a massive explosion deep within a coal mine in Golestan province, northern Iran, a large number of miners have been killed and others trapped and concerns are growing for their safety. So far, the death of 35 miners has been confirmed and 21 bodies have been recovered. Most of these miners have perished due to lack of oxygen. Reports indicate that the bodies recovered at this point are of those miners that went in after the explosion in an attempt to save their comrades already trapped at a depth of 1200 to 1800 meters underground. The Tudeh Party of Iran released a statement on Wednesday 3 May expressing concern that around 60 miners had been trapped within the deep tunnels of the privately owned North Western Zemestan Yurt Coalmine. The authorities locally have already confirmed that the mine lacked certain necessary safety equipment including that for the monitoring of the level of explosive gas build up within the complex. One miner has reported that the motor operating some of the machinery had already stopped owing to the gas build up but that the miners were told to continue with their work and restart the motor at which point the initial explosion occurred.

Iraqi Communist PartyTurkish warplanes yesterday (25th April) bombarded sites in the Sinjar area in Iraq, which it said belonged to the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), inflicting human losses and material damage.

This aggression came after the recent referendum in Turkey, which gave Erdogan and his government a green light to continue along the path of arrogance and to seek to impose its will on other countries in the region through the use of force. Such an approach would, of course, open the door to further complexities in the region and the world, and would further complicate international cooperation and coordination against Daesh and terrorism with even greater difficulties.
