Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian

US Reportedly Issues Visa To Iran's Foreign Minister

Following Israel's bombing of Iran's embassy complex in Syria, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian's upcoming visit to New York has stirred controversy.

Sources have told that entry visas have been issued for Amir-Abdollahian and his delegation, while Tehran continues to support militant groups in the Middle East, who are engaged in attacks on international shipping and against Israel. Observers have raised alarms, particularly as his visit aligns with the anniversary of the 1983 bombing of the US embassy in Lebanon, believed to have been organized by Iranian agents working with proxies.

Against the backdrop of the Gaza conflict, Iran and the United States have reportedly engaged in indirect communication, seeking to prevent further escalation. Talks between the two nations, held in Oman in January, have continued through parallel channels, with Iran pressing for US intervention to compel a ceasefire in Gaza while the US seeks to limit Iranian activities in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen.

Events, including the deadly drone attack on a US military facility in Jordan and Israel's bombing of the Iranian consulate in Syria, have further strained relations. While Washington has emphasized holding Iran accountable for its actions, Iran has alleged US complicity in the Israeli attacks and demanded accountability from Washington.

However, the United States has moved to clarify that it had no prior knowledge of the April 1 bombing and firmly asserts that any retaliation against its interests is deemed unacceptable.
