Czech President Milos Zeman, known for his fiery anti-migrant comments, said Sunday that it was almost impossible to integrate the Muslim community into European society. "The experience of Western European countries which have ghettos and excluded localities shows that the integration of the Muslim community is practically impossible," Zeman said in a televised interview. "Let them have their culture in their countries and not take it to Europe, otherwise it will end up like Cologne," he added, referring to the mass New Year's Eve assaults on women in Germany and elsewhere. "Integration is possible with cultures that are similar, and the similarities may vary," pointing out that the Vietnamese and Ukrainian communities had been able to integrate into Czech society.

Iran has agreed to buy 114 Airbus Group SE aircraft for state carrier Iran Air, Minister of Roads and Urban Development Abbas Akhoundi said Saturday before international sanctions were lifted on the Islamic Republic. The deal includes a mix of new and used jets from the A320 family and the out-of-production A340s, an Iranian official said, asking not be identified because the details are private. The first deliveries are due as early as July, he said. Iran has complied with the terms of an international agreement to curb its nuclear program, clearing the way for sanctions to end, the United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency said Saturday. That will pave the way for Iran to purchase sorely needed aircraft to renew an aging fleet, feed domestic demand at its 50 airports in a nation of 80 million people and expand international flying. “When the Iran sanctions are lifted, Airbus Group is ready to support Iranian civil and para-public transportation sector development in strict compliance with all international laws (U.S., EU and UN sanctions and embargoes),‎” a spokeswoman for Toulouse, France-based Airbus said in an e-mailed statement. Para-public transportation refers to helicopters used by police and border-control agencies. Airbus declined to comment on any discussions with Iran Air. More»

A prominent ally of Germany's Angela Merkel has threatened to take her government to court over its open door refugee policy as political pressure grows for the chancellor to reduce the number of new arrivals. Bavarian state premier Horst Seehofer said he would send the federal government a written request within the next two weeks to restore "orderly conditions" at the nation's borders, through which one million migrants and refugees passed last year alone. "If it doesn't follow, the state government will have no other choice but to file a suit at the Federal Constitutional Court," Seehofer told Der Spiegel magazine on Saturday. More»

Iran emerged from years of economic isolation on Saturday when world powers lifted crippling sanctions against the Islamic Republic in return for Tehran complying with a deal to curb its nuclear ambitions. In a dramatic move scheduled to coincide with the scrapping of the sanctions, Tehran also announced the release of five Americans including Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian as part of a prisoner swap with the United States. Together, the lifting of sanctions and the prisoner deal considerably reduce the hostility between Tehran and Washington that has shaped the Middle East since Iran's Islamic Revolution of 1979. Tens of billions of dollars worth of Iranian assets will now be unfrozen and global companies that have been barred from doing business there will be able to exploit a market hungry for everything from automobiles to airplane parts.

International sanctions on Iran will be lifted Saturday when the International Atomic Energy Agency issues its final report on Tehran's disputed nuclear programme, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was quoted as saying. "Today is a good day for the Iranian people as sanctions will be lifted today," Zarif was quoted as saying by the ISNA agency. State television cited Zarif as saying that the IAEA, the U.N. nuclear watchdog, would on Saturday issue its final report confirming that Iran had completed its commitments under the July 14 nuclear deal.

Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom will not be welcome in Israel following her call for investigations into the killing of Palestinians by Israeli forces and other critical comments, a top Israeli official said Wednesday. Israel's fiery deputy foreign minister, Tzipi Hotovely, harshly criticised Wallstrom, calling her comments "a mix of blindness and political stupidity". "Israel has decided to close its doors to official Swedish visits," she said in comments broadcast on Israeli public radio. A foreign ministry spokesman later walked back her comments, saying they referred only to Wallstrom and not other Swedish officials. An adviser to Hotovely told AFP that diplomatic relations with Sweden would continue. More»

Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed Wednesday his country had developed a vaccine for the Ebola virus which has killed thousands of people in west Africa. But Putin, who is famed for his talent for headline-grabbing announcements, did not give any name for the vaccine, nor did he say how it worked, who was developing it or give details of any trials. "We have good news," Putin was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti news agency. "We have registered a drug against Ebola, which after the corresponding tests has been shown to be highly effective, more effective than the drugs used worldwide up to now." To date no approved vaccine or treatment for Ebola exists and the UN's World Health Organization has authorised the fast-track development of drugs. The pharmaceutical scramble sparked by the two-year Ebola crisis -- which killed more than 11,000 people in west Africa -- has yielded several promising vaccine candidates but none has yet been tested in general, non-infected populations -- the gold standard for proving efficacy.
