Press TV- A recent study shows that Iran will be among 32 most powerful economies in the world by 2050. The study that was carried out by professional services giant PwC said Iran would be the 17th most powerful economy in the world within the next three decades. It added that the country would outperform the incumbent European players like Italy, Spain and the Netherlands whose ranks would be 21st, 26th and 32nd, respectively. The Islamic Republic would also lead several Asian players like South Korea (18) as well as the Philippines (19) and other Malaysia (24). Iran would closely track Pakistan (16) as well as regional rivals Saudi Arabia (13) and Turkey (11). At the top of the list of the best performing economies by 2050 would be China which will be followed by India and the United States, as reported by The Independent . The biggest surprises may be Indonesia (4), Brazil (5), Russia (6) and Mexico (7) which will be ahead of the Asian giant Japan (8) and the current European powerhouse Germany (9).

This was utterly false. Threats and sanctions served only to undermine diplomacy, strengthen hard-liners on both sides and push Iran into building 20,000 centrifuges to supply its civilian nuclear program with enriched uranium, as documented in Trita Parsi’s book, A Single Roll of the Dice: Obama’s Diplomacy With Iran . A former hostage at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran who rose to be a senior officer on the Iran desk at the State Department told Parsi that the main obstacle to diplomacy with Iran during Obama’s first term was the U.S. refusal to “take ‘Yes’ for an answer.” When Brazil and Turkey persuaded Iran to accept the terms of an agreement proposed by the U.S. a few months earlier, the U.S. responded by rejecting its own proposal. By then the main U.S. goal was to ratchet up sanctions at the U.N., which this diplomatic success would have undermined.

She added: And I did, it's okay. But what scared me was in that moment how would another woman who doesn't feel comfortable taking off her headscarf feel?

We will upload, and we must applaud the two leaders working towards a solution. Other things are necessary such as the cooperation of Greece and Turkey, the next-door countries, and successful referendums within each community. Last time negotiations on Cyprus seemed close to a deal but the effort collapsed when hackers broke into the UN computer systems and documents were leaked to a separate newspaper.

Can I ask this question, what is being done in relation to, from that advice from Northern Ireland, to bring advice, which could benefit Cyprus at this moment in time? I think the example of Northern Ireland is an example to the whole world, and I think it has been of benefit in the dedication and encouragement of both this Cypriot leaders negotiating, the realisation that the status quo of divided services is untenable? And we need to make sure Turkey understands that when it comes to guarantees.

The suspects are being tried in Ankara and face multiple life sentences. Dressed smartly in suits, they were led into the courthouse by paramilitary forces in front of television cameras surrounded by heavy security and a water cannon truck. The courtroom was packed with security forces including police with shields behind the suspects as the judge confirmed the identities of those on trial. The coup was blamed on Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, living in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania, and his movement. Gulen strongly denies the charges. Turkey says the Gulen movement is a terrorist organisation and the suspects in Ankara also face charges of being a member of an armed terror group. The men went on trial after 47 suspects, mainly soldiers, appeared in court for the first time on Monday in the southern city of Mugla, accused of plotting to assassinate Erdogan.
