Summary of Today's BroadcastRFE/RL Persian ServiceSaturday, March 16, 2002 Political Factions Respond to Senator Biden's Proposal * A day after Senator Biden invited Iranian legislators to meet with their counterparts in the US, the Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, at a meeting of the Assembly of Experts ruled out negotiations with the US. He left it ambiguous, however, whether he was also had in mind the Biden proposal of parliamentary, vs. official governmental, talks. The daily Keyhan, associated with Khamenei, attacked the positive reactions to the invitation by such reformist MP's as Ebrahim Bai-Salami. In tactics perhaps meant to forestall conservative opposition to such talks, Bai-Salami stressed their non-governmental nature and other reformists MP's, such as Meysam Saidi and Elaheh Kulai, said this was an opportunity to neutralize US threats against Iran. However, leftists such as Ali Akbar Mohtashami-pur, now head of the Majles reform coalition, said Biden's invitation was just a part of the US efforts to impose its policies on Iran. (Siavash Ardalan) Journalist Siamak Pourzand's Trial * Calling from his jail in Tehran, journalist Siamak Pourzand, 71, left phone messages on his wife's answering machine in Los Angeles, begging her and their daughters not to make any comments about his trial and not do interviews with foreign radios, such as RFE/RL. However, his wife, lawyer and human rights activist Mehrangiz Kar, said in an interview with RFE/RL that her husband has been brainwashed in prison. In a statement from Paris, Reporters san Frontiers condemned Pourzand's trial. (Amir-Mosaddegh Katouzian) No Trial Dates for Two Jailed Nationalist-Religious Coalition Members * Ms. Nargess Mohammadi, wife of jailed nationalist-religious coalition member Taghi Rahmani, tells RFE/RL that her husband's lawyers say the Revolutionary Court will not free him or his jail mate Habibollah Peyman, and no dates have been set for their trial. Of the sixty 60 Freedom Movement and National-Religious Coalition members jailed more than a year ago on charges of subversion, only these two are still in jail. Others have been set free on bail. (Amir-Mosaddegh Katouzian) New Year Holiday Travel Bita Teymouri, an editor of the monthly magazine Transportation (Haml-ol-Naql) tells RFE/RL that holiday travel will increase this year due to the coincidence of religious mourning with Iranian New Year celebrations. She says train tickets for the 15-day holiday that begins on March 20 are sold out, while bus ticket prices have been raised. Many Iranians will go to Dubai and other Persian Gulf destinations, as well as Turkey, Syria and Cyprus, where they meet with their relatives who live overseas, according to Ms. Teymouri. (Shireen Famili) Iranian-US Rivalry over EU Pistachio Market * Hasan Mortazavi, director of foreign marketing for the Rafsanjan pistachio growers association, tells RFE/RL that the US competes head to head with Iran in the EU pistachio market. Mortazavi says bad weather damaged Iranian pistachio production last year, while high US custom tariffs make it economically unfeasible to export Iranian pistachios to the US. (Shahram Mirian, Cologne) Economic Impact of Private S&L's and Credit Card Companies * Finance Minister Mazaheri says unregulated savings and loan companies are damaging the economy. Most S&L's and credit card issuers are connected to the parastatal foundations that sprang up after the revolution, such as the Bonyad-e Mostazafan (Foundation for the Dispossessed and War Veterans), says economist Dr. Musa Ghani-Nezhad during an interview with RFE/RL. The Bonyad's savings and loan business competes with the government banks in setting interest rates on deposits and loans. He says the reason such unregulated businesses exist is the failure of banks to provide needed services such as credit cards. (Mahmonir Rahimi) Italian MP's Sign MKO Petition * Paulo Cinto, an Italian MP from the Green faction tells RFE/RL that when the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) members present its case for democracy and human rights in Iran it is hard for Italian MP's not to sign their petitions. But he says only 150 MP's have signed it, not 500 as previously reported. MP Dario Riovolta, a member of the government's Viva Italy faction, tells RFE/RL that Italian MP's cannot disagree with a call for human rights in Iran, though they know little about the intricacies of domestic politics in Iran.

سناتور دمكرات جوزف بايدن، رييس كميسون روابط خارجي سناي آمريكا چهارشنبه پيش گفتگوهاي رودر رو با نمايندگان مجلس شوراي اسلامي را خواستار شد. آيت الله خامنه اي، يك روز پس از اعلام اين دعوت، طي سخناني خطاب به اعضاي مجلس خبرگان رهبري، هرگونه گفتگويي با آمريكا را منع كرد. روزنامه كيهان، كه زيرنظر رهبر جمهوري اسلامي اداره مي شود، امروز شديدا به واكنش نمايندگان اصلاح طلب مجلس به پيشنهاد بايدن حمله كرد. بعضي از اصلاح طلبان مجلس، از حمله ابراهيم باي سلامي و علي شكوري راد، با اشاره با ماهيت مردمي و غيردولتي گفتگوي نمايندگان مجالس ايران و آمريكا اميدوارند ضمن ابراز واكنش مثبت، خشم محافظه كاران را برنيانگيزند برخي ديگر از اصلاح طلبان، از جمله ميثم سعيدي و الهه كولايي، اين پيشنهاد را زمينه اي براي خنثي كردن تهديدهاي آمريكا قلمداد كردند ولي اصلاح طلبان چپگرا، نظير علي اكبر محتشمي، پيشنهاد سناتور بايدن را بخشي از كوشش آمريكا براي تحميل سياست هاي خود به ايران دانستند.
