Iran hails Japan 'active role' in Asia

Today in Indonesia, the foreign minister of Iran, Manouchehr Mottaki, met with the foreign minister of Japan, Seiji Maehara. Once again, Japan reiterated that the relationship between Japan and Iran was “historical.” I still don’t know what that means.

In any event, for his part, Mottaki said Iran was pleased to see Japan take a more active role in Asia. Interestingly, a few days later, Iran would get rid of Mottaki. My government has led me to believe that his removal was a sign that Iran, in fact, did not approve of what Japan was doing in Asia. And in particular, Iran disapproved of what I was doing, namely trying to discover the truth and relay that information to the public.

Boo hoo. Sniffle. Sniffle.
