Ali Baqeri, Iran’s deputy chief nuclear negotiator, told state TV on Thursday night that “step by step” progress toward lifting sanctions can be made in negotiations with the West over the country’s nuclear program. (IRIB, 12 April)
Baqeri expressed the hope of Iran’s negotiating team that talks with P5+1 can resume with a ‘‘constructive, clear and functional response’’ toward Iran. He added that Iran’s goal in future talks is a lifting of the sanctions. “It can happen step by step,” Baqeri said.
Pack of lies by a dirty Islamist anti Iranian regime.
Four bananas and a cucumber. That's what the Iranian people got back in return.
Actually these sanctions will only lead to a better Iran and more Khod Kafei (self-sufficiency) as the bankrupt deadbeat US can't even do much to tiny Cuba let alone a energy giant like Iran. A recent report showed that US "sanctions" only improved Cuban economy, agriculture and health. Iran is already self-sufficient in most things and these impotent sanctions are accelerating Iran's diversification, agriculture and manufacturing. Iran's economy with over 80 million people is closer to a TRILLION Dollars in real GDP nominal PPP terms. Cuba with barely 10 million people is about a 100 times smaller than Iran in just about everything but still gave the US and its pathetic Zionist masters the middle finger for over 50 years. Iran is expanding its trade with Asia at an astronomical level and has a huge landmass full of natural resources and a very industrious population. In the new Asia centric world these sanctions are meaningless. As the Chinese Yuan appreciates and takes over as the global currency, Iran is on a winner and bubba at Walmart a total eternal loser as Chinese goods become unaffordable for the deadbeat US consumer living on foodstamps.
Study: Economic Crisis Improved Cuba’s Health
The devastating economic crisis that gripped Cuba in the 1990s led to a marked improvement in the nation’s health, researchers have found.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union — and the subsequent termination of Soviet aid — and amid the tightening of the U.S. embargo, Cuba’s government was forced to implement tight rationing of food and fuel. But it also introduced policies like commercial neighborhood gardens and the use of animals in farming in place of machinery. Cuba imported 1.5 million bicycles from China, and produced half a million more.
By looking at health statistics from that time—known in Cuba as the “Special Period”—researchers could see if such wholesale changes in dietary and exercise habits, across the population, made a difference to the nation’s health.
hilarious bullspin. Cuba is flat broke and has "improved" but barely since the 90s when there wasn't enough food for more than the first three weeks of every month.
perhaps you'll be willing to see Iranians reach that lowly standard of living, but i doubt that most will embrace that nadir of nourishment for themselves and their children.
The term 'necessities is the mother of all inventions', has rapidly turned the great nation of IRAN which is currently under more than three decades of those damned, unfair and nonsensical heavy pressures of sanctions, threats and bullies by the so-called world's most criminal Zionists of the U.S.(who would blindly, foolishly, unthinkingly and loyally follow any devilish advice, command or order from its life-term master of Israel) and its puppet allies of the West and some middle eastern nations; into a self-reliance, self-sufficiency and of course, self-confidence one in the whole region of the Middle East. What a poor Israel-made slave nation of the United States of Armageddon!
Needless to say, the hyperventilating IRI Groupie who posted his/her characteristically lengthy, delusional, dishonest, factually-challenged, and psychotic rants is living in a Western country and would not leave his residence in the West in order to move to Cuba, IRI or Communist China for all the gold in the world. Talk is cheap, especially on the Internet!
Junior Cuba has better health care system than the deadbeat US.
Cuba is on another planet when it comes to healthcare. Don't even compare the US to Cuba regarding the Healthcare system.
By what measure does Cuba have a better health care system than the US?
Cubans do not have to pay for their healthcare its free,in the us healthcare is a for profit business and if you cant afford health insurance then you are out of luck
"Free"? There is nothing "free" in this world! The Cuban government takes most of the money that its people make and that is what pays for their health care. How's that for "free"? I certainly won't defend every aspect of US health care, but it is a lot more complex than your obviously limited knowledge would indicate. Many (if not most) US hospitals are not-for-profit, as are Medicare and Medicaid. Again, there are flaws in US health care as there are in other Western countries, but I really do love the West-residing long-distance Groupies of Cuba, Communist China, the IRI, etc who wouldn't leave their homes in the West to settle down permanently in those Workers Paradises, but who do nothing but vomit propaganda about how awesome things are in Cuba and the IRI.
Is that why the Cubans do anything to escape the communist paradise,even if it means to swim across the shark infested waters?
you've no idea of the US healthcare system....... it's not a "for-profit" business and it's any one thing at all.
it's an unwieldy amalgam of profit, non-profit, government-subsidized, and private charity-based services.

Its a little thing called taxation even western countries have it thats how their able to provide a lot of the things people take for granted,as for us health care if you don`t have/cant get health insurance you are looking at huge medical bills or very substandard care,indeed the us is the only western nation without some sort of national health care/universal health insurance system,but then the quality of us social services in general was always very inferior to those in the rest of the western world.What us right wing politicians moronically refer to as socialized medicine is actually the norm in the western world.For cuba being a developing nation to have a first world health care system is a truly amazing achievment
Yes and your access to it and the quality of healthcare you receive is determined by how much money you have,unlike in most other western countries
