ARMENIAN EXPERT: NO US ACTION AGAINST IRAN WILL BE TAKEN TILL LATE MAY
April 5 2007
No military intervention into Iran is expected now, the director of
the Oriental Studies Institute of the Armenian National Academy of
Sciences, Prof. Ruben Safrastyan said at a news conference today.
According to him, today there is only information campaign that is
manipulating public opinion and hints that a war is possible.
"However, by the end of May, when the UN ultimatum expires, there will
be no US military actions against Iran. In late May, US Third Fleet
is to arrive in the Persian Gulf that is to rotate with the fleet,
which is now deployed there. But Iran’s isolation has not reached
the stage wanted by the USA," Safrastyan says.
At the same time, according to the professor, Iran has a
thousand-year-long experience in diplomacy, so the USA must consider
the country seriously. Ruben Safrastyan reiterated that Iran is not
Iraq, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is not Saddam Hussein. "One must keep
this in mind, first of all, by the US administration," he stressed
saying that the Iran-US relations are important for the whole world
and, naturally, no wonder, that everyone’s attention is engrossed
