DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - With the ink barely dry on a nuclear deal that paves the way for warmer relations with the West, Iran's new leadership is making a push to patch up tensions with U.S. allies closer to home too.
TEHRAN, Iran - Iraq's prime minister has arrived in Iran's capital for a three-day visit that will focus on the civil war in Syria and bilateral ties.
Recent editorials from Tennessee newspapers:
TEHRAN, Iran - Iran's foreign ministry on Tuesday asked Afghanistan not to sign a security deal with the U.S. that could keep thousands of American and allied forces in its neighboring country for another decade.
TEHRAN, Iran - Iran's nuclear chief said Sunday that the Islamic Republic needs more nuclear power plants, the country's official news agency reported, just after it struck a deal regarding its contested nuclear program with world powers.
TEHRAN, Iran - The nuclear deal struck by Iran and six world powers will put more rubber on the road in the Islamic Republic.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - The sanctions relief offered to Iran by the U.S. and five world powers has begun to get the gears of commerce slowly turning again in an economy that remains in shambles.
TEHRAN, Iran - Hard-line Iranian lawmakers criticized a nuclear deal reached in Geneva last week, with one calling it a "poisoned chalice," but a majority of deputies who spoke Wednesday in a parliamentary hearing on the accord backed an initiative that appears to enjoy both wide public support and the endorsement of top clerics.
WASHINGTON - The White House on Tuesday made a holiday appeal to Iran to return a retired FBI agent and two other Americans being held in the country.
WASHINGTON - An agreement secured with its greatest global foe, the Obama administration pleaded Tuesday with a more familiar if often difficult negotiating partner not to scuttle last weekend's Iran nuclear deal: Congress.
The Carterization of Barack Obama's presidency, a largely self-inflicted debacle, has overtaken America's once popular and trusted young chief executive with stunning, startling rapidity.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - Even before Iran's envoys could pack their bags in Geneva after wrapping up a first-step nuclear deal with world powers, President Hassan Rouhani was opening a potentially tougher diplomatic front: selling the give-and-take to his country's powerful insider interests led by the Revolutionary Guard.
WASHINGTON - Pushing back hard, President Barack Obama forcefully defended the temporary agreement to freeze Iran's disputed nuclear program on Monday, declaring that the United States "cannot close the door on diplomacy."
BRUSSELS - European Union sanctions against Iran could be eased as soon as December, officials said Monday, after a potentially history-shaping deal that gives Tehran six months to increase access to its nuclear sites in exchange for keeping the core components of its uranium program.
Proponents of the Iran nuclear deal are calling it "a victory for diplomacy." That very much remains to be seen; certainly it is a premature judgment. The same is true of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's dark prophecy that the deal is "a historic mistake."
TEHRAN, Iran - Hundreds of cheering supporters greeted Iran's nuclear negotiators as they arrived back to Tehran late Sunday night.
The political balance sheet from Sunday's nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

Key figures in the secret U.S.-Iranian nuclear talks:
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama declared an interim nuclear deal with Iran an "important first step" that cuts off the Islamic republic's most likely path toward a bomb.
Iran continues to be a focus of frustration for United States foreign policy. The fundamentalist Islamic regime in Tehran has long voiced hostility to Israel as well as the U.S. punctuated from time to time with public threats of apocalyptic destruction.
LONDON - Prime Minister David Cameron contacted Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday ahead of negotiations over Tehran's nuclear program in what Downing Street says was the first such conversation between the leaders of the two countries in more than a decade.
MOSCOW - Russia's President Vladimir Putin says that there is a "real chance" to end a standoff over the Iranian nuclear program.
TEHRAN, Iran - Iran's culture minister has again spoken up in defense of social media, saying Facebook shouldn't be banned and that it's not a "criminal application."
Well into last weekend it looked as though Iran was going to win the latest round of negotiations - by a knockout, not on points. Secretary of State Kerry had flown to Geneva to sign a deal that would have stuffed tens of billions of dollars into the pockets of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, easing the economic pressure - the pressure that had brought Iran to the negotiating table in the first place. The funds would have been turned over with no restrictions. Khamenei could have used them to further Iran's illicit nuclear weapons program - the program that negotiations were meant to stop.
