Iran military drills

The Iranian Army's Navy has staged a large-scale military exercise in the Sea of Oman and north of the Indian Ocean. The drills are aimed at testing indigenously-built military equipment and enhancing the country's preparedness against potential threats.

Slamming US anti-Iran policies

Tehran has blasted anti-Iran provisions of the US National Defense Authorization Act signed into law by President Joe Biden. Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kan’ani said the provisions reflect the continuation of Washington’s hostile, provocative and meddlesome policies against Iran. Kan’ani said they are also aimed at stoking Iranophobia and promoting a propaganda campaign against the Islamic Republic. He pointed to Washington’s false allegations against Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program specified in the Defense Authorization Act. Kan’ani said it was the US that violated International law by pulling out of the 2015 nuclear deal, adding the accusations will not legitimize Washington’s illegal sanctions against Tehran. The National Defense Authorization Act, signed into law last week, accuses Iran of a lack of transparency with the International Atomic Energy Agency and vows to combat what it describes as Iran’s aggression.

Aung San Suu Kyi convicted

A court in Junta-ruled Myanmar finds ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi guilty on five counts of corruption. The court has ordered Suu Kyi to serve 7 more years in jail. The offenses are related to her lease and use of a helicopter while she was Myanmar's de facto leader. The latest court ruling wraps up the remaining cases against her. Suu Kyi’s new verdict adds to sentences of at least 26 years, which ranged from corruption to illegally owning radio equipment. The former leader has denied all charges against her. Last week, the UN Security Council adopted the first-ever resolution on Myanmar that called on the military junta to release all political prisoners. Myanmar’s military seized power in February last year over alleged voter fraud during the 2020 elections.
