"Japanese people love the Iranian culture, which is similar to theirs. Great food, respect for seniors and civic pride and order."

According to Amnesty International, Iran carried out at least 977 executions in 2015, at least 567 executions in 2016, and at least 507 executions in 2017.  In August 2010, the watchdog group Iran Human Rights reported that seven stoning executions had been carried out over the past four years, and that 14 or more sentences of death by stoning (for 11 women and three men) were pending. In 2010, a highly publicized sentence of death by stoning was altered under international pressure. In 2006, a teenage girl of the age of 16, Atefah Sahaaleh, was sentenced to death, and executed two weeks later by hanging in a public square for the charges of adultery and "crimes against chastity".

Really promising news. Unlike western nations, Japan has never been at war with Iran, or had any negative issues. Iran is a wonderful nation with kind people who love Japan. Likewise Japanese people love the Iranian culture, which is similar to theirs. Great food, respect for seniors and civic pride and order.

Happy 90th Anniversary of Japanese-Iran Relations!

This is good news. Just because US admin says “simon says...” doesn’t mean we should blindly follow.
