Japanese PM Abe arrives in Tehran on mediation mission 

Shinto Abe is the first Japanese prime minister to visit Tehran since the 1979 Islamic revolution. He arrived on Wednesday for a state visit on a bid, approved by President Donald Trump during his visit to Tokyo last month, to alleviate the crisis between the US and Iran. Abe first checked the responses of Beijing and Moscow. Until a short time ago, Japan was one Tehran’s biggest oil customers. Abe hopes to allay high US-Iranian tension by securing an easing of US sanctions on Tehran’s oil exports and relieving its economic plight.

    The day when Iran will consider a positively and friendly look over the concerns of the rest of the world, that very day the pigs will pick up each a big potato and will fly high up to the sun.

    And then, fall down in a rain of french fries with bacon. All you might need is to add some salt and salad.
