New Ira­nian Pres­i­dent

Southasia - - EDITOR’S MAIL -

The newly elected Ira­nian pres­i­dent, Has­san Rowhani, brings a lot of hope to Iran – a coun­try that has been be­lea­guered by iso­la­tion­ism for a long time and all be­cause its leader Mah­moud Ah­madine­jad did not see eye to eye with the west and it did not mat­ter to him how much his coun­try suf­fered be­cause of this at­ti­tude. Pres­i­dent Has­san Rowhani has been elected as the new Ira­nian Pres­i­dent with the hope that he will bring Iran back into the main­stream and will en­able it to take ad­van­tage of the fruits of be­ing a ma­jor oil pro­duc­ing coun­try.

Rowhani be­gins his four-year term as Iran faces grave chal­lenges over its ail­ing econ­omy and in­ter­na­tional iso­la­tion due to the con­tro­ver­sial poli­cies of his firebrand pre­de­ces­sor. It is hoped the new govern­ment of Iran will take fun­da­men­tal steps in el­e­vat­ing the coun­try’s po­si­tion based on national in­ter­est and work to­wards lift­ing of the op­pres­sive sanc­tions. The na­tion ob­vi­ously needs a national de­ter­mi­na­tion to keep a dis­tance from ex­trem­ism. It must now con­cen­trate on build­ing the na­tion. Hari Govind Dehli, In­dia
