During the Iran-Iraq war in the eighties, the Iranian regime recruited a large number of child soldiers. Many of their parents were not even aware that their children had been recruited until it was too late.

Iran signed the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child two and a half decades ago, but it clearly means nothing to the Iranian regime because it still continues to recruit child soldiers.

Google removed two Iranian Regime-created apps, designed to trick users into thinking that their messaging was encrypted, from its Play Store on April 25.

The apps, Talagram (Persian for Golden Gram or Telegram Gold) and Hotgram, were developed by the Regime after they blocked the Telegram messenger app and forced Iranians to look for alternative private messaging platforms. The Regime developed ones allowed the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) to spy on user’s private messages and filters opposition channels to prevent many Iranians from viewing them.

A Middle East security expert said that the approach of most Western nations towards the dangers posed by Iran and its proxies is inadequate, during a recent trip to Australia and New Zealand, and emphasised the need to contain Iran.

Dr Michael Doran, former senior director in the US National Security Council, said: “I think there are three steps. Number one, we need to reach a global consensus, or at least a consensus in the West, that the restrictions on the Iranian nuclear program have to be permanent.”

American analyst Michael Pregent discussed Iran’s offer of a prisoner exchange with Western countries this week. He believes this is one of many indicators that Iran is starting to feel real pressure from the US sanctions on the Islamic Republic and its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). In an interview on the weekly segment of The Washington Perspective he said, "Now we aren't going to give you 23 prisoners for two prisoners.” Pregent strongly supports US President Trump's pressure policy towards Iran.
