Asia Times Caspian summit a triumph for Tehran This week's summit of the Caspian littoral states in Tehran has opened up new breathing space for Iranian diplomacy from the Caspian to the Arab world and brought Iran to the verge of a new strategic relationship with Russia. Simultaneously, the US's coercive diplomacy in the region has been frustrated. Washington will be particularly incensed by Moscow's siding with Tehran on its nuclear program. - Kaveh L Afrasiabi

CAP Tensions Peak in Northern Iraq

Laura Rozen/ - Middle East Economic Survey: "The simmering row between Iraq’s Oil Ministry and the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) in Irbil over its recent moves to license oil companies for exploration and development in KRG-controlled areas of northern Iraq stepped up a gear this week after allegations by former Iraqi Oil Minister Issam Chalabi, in a /MEES /interview, that the production-sharing contract awarded to US independent Hunt Oil in early September relates to areas of Iraq at present outside KRG control. If confirmed, the development would appear to suggest that the KRG is not only targeting oil investment, but may have broader political ambitions for control of oil and gas in the disputed areas adjacent to its territory in northern Iraq."

Newsmax's Ken Timmerman reports from the Qandil mountains of northern Iraq while hanging out with the Iranian Kurdish militants the PJAK dreaming of attacking Iran and anticipating a possible Turkish invasion. An Iranian American contact quite hostile to the Iranian regime comments skeptically, "[PJAK] are not destabilizing Iran, They are destabilizing IRAQ! Turkish forces want to enter the Kurdish area to go after them." But Newsmax sounds quite excited with its new found rebel friends, kissing cousins of the PKK terrorist group attacking Turkey.

UPI Commentary: Not since Stalin By ARNAUD DE BORCHGRAVE The last visit by a Russian leader to Iran was by Joseph Stalin in December 1943 for a secret summit with Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill. The British leader wanted the next major allied invasion to target Europe’s soft underbelly in the Balkans. The Soviet dictator and the U.S. president outvoted him. Thus, the decision was reached to make the invasion of France, which took place seven months later in 1944, the next geostrategic priority. This second summit, 64 years later, could also prove momentous -- down the road.

What they have said about Foreign Press Review
"FPR'ın iki "kötü" özelliği var: 1. Alışkanlık yaratıyor, onsuz yapamaz hale geliyorsunuz; 2. Değeri alındığı değil, arada bir de olsa, alınamadığı vakit anlaşılıyor. Bir de sürekli bir kaygıya yol açıyor; 'Ya bir gün kesilir ve onu hiç alamazsam' duygusuyla sürekli yaşamak kolay değil."

Cengiz Çandar

"... fantastic .... an outstanding and unique service, not just for those who follow Turkey closely, but those who follow international trends and ideas. ... selection of material is some of the best anywhere ... coverage of the Turkish press and Turkish issues is truly unsurpassed .... outstanding and intelligent service"
