The countries are looking to boost their strategic partnership, as previously outlined by their respective presidents

Moscow and Tehran are working on the final version of a comprehensive new treaty, which they are close to signing, according to the director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Second Asia Department, Zamir Kabulov.

Speaking to the media on Monday, the official gave no explicit timeline for when the agreement would be ready for signing, but noted that the project had already been at “a high level of readiness” at the start of the year, but has since been delayed for an uncertain period due to some revisions by the Iranian side.

The bilateral treaty is being prepared on the orders of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, who agreed to develop it in January 2022 in order to achieve a long-term strategic partnership.

Meanwhile, cooperation between Moscow and Tehran has continued to grow in other fields in recent years, as both sides have actively supported each other on the international stage. Following this week’s Israeli attack on the Iranian diplomatic mission in Damascus, Russia called for an emergency UN Security Council meeting.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry condemned the airstrike, which left several Iranian diplomats and officers dead, including two generals, as “completely unacceptable” and has urged Israel to abandon all provocative military actions in Syria and other neighboring countries, warning of potentially dire consequences for the region.

The head of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence service, Sergey Naryshkin, has described the attack as an act of terrorism, condemning it as an “ugly and criminal step” by Israel.

Tehran, in turn, has harshly condemned last month’s Crocus City Hall terrorist attack near Moscow, which led to the death of over 140 people. Iran has vowed to cooperate more actively with Russia in the fight against terrorism. Iranian President Raisi had personally expressed his sympathies to Putin and called for “serious measures by the international community for punishing the architects and perpetrators of this [act].”

Previously, during their meeting in Moscow in December 2023, Putin and Raisi spent a total of five hours discussing bilateral ties, global challenges such as the Israel-Hamas conflict, as well as trade and cooperation in energy and education.

The Russian president had stated at the time that Moscow and Tehran were actively engaging in cooperation “across the entire spectrum of our bilateral relations.”

Victims of Domestic Violence Rally Against Proposed Joint Custody Laws in Japan, Citing Legal System Flaws

Published

on

In Japan, the debate over joint custody laws reveals deep societal concerns about family violence and its impact on victims. Critics argue the proposed joint custody laws could endanger victims by inadvertently reconnecting them with abusive ex-partners. Demonstrations have taken place, with advocates arguing that the system lacks effective measures to protect those affected by family violence.

Women, disproportionately impacted, represent a higher percentage of abuse reports. Allegations of physical abuse backed by photographic evidence and medical reports have been dismissed by the courts, leaving victims feeling helpless and ignored. On the other hand, parents deprived of their children’s presence argue the legal system fails to address their grievances or consider the emotional harm inflicted on both children and parents.

Incidents include workers installing solar panels in water, posing a risk of electrocution. Poor working conditions have led to dissatisfaction among electricians, who feel their safety concerns and expertise are being ignored.
