Summary of Today's BroadcastRFE/RL Persian ServiceThursday, May 09, 2002 - Conservative MP denies US-Iran talks - Support grows in Iran for US-Iran talks - Improved US relations would help Iran attract foreign capital - US-Europe division over Iran - Khatami's emergency job creation plan - Court sentences Nowruz publisher to jail and ban from journalism - Police shut down stores for copying already bootlegged software Conservative MP Denies Secret US-Iran Talks * Mohammad Shahi-Arablu, a conservative MP from Hashtrud, denies there have been secret US-Iran contacts recently, despite statements to the contrary yesterday by Mohsen Mirdamadi, head of the Majles national security and foreign affairs committee. Shahi-Arablu tells RFE/RL that conservative newspapers printed the rumors simply to provide a platform for the regime to deny them. Such talks cannot take place when the US addresses Iran from a position of superiority, he adds. (Siavash Ardalan) Frankfurter Allgemeine: Iranians More Keen on Talks with the US * Support grows in Iran for talks with the US, according to a Frankfurter Allgemeine report from Tehran. The German newspaper reports that more than half of the respondents to a poll conducted by Iran's culture ministry favor the separation of politics and religion, a quarter want less influence of religion in politics, and only a quarter say they are satisfied with the status-quo. (Shahram Mirian, Cologne) Economic Benefits of US-Iran Relations * Relations with the US would help Iran attract much needed foreign capital and modern management technology, says Bijan Khajehpur-Khoei, head of the Tehran-based strategic consulting firm Atieh Bahar, who took part in a roundtable on Iran's foreign policy since September 11 at St. Anthony's College, Oxford. However, Khajehpur tells RFE/RL that even if Iran were to normalize with the US, economic problems - the flight of capital, brain drain and government domination of the economy -- would keep foreign investors at bay. (Shahran Tabari, London) Janes Foreign Report: US-Europe Division over Iran. * Unlike the European governments, the US does not believe that Iran has started a new chapter in its domestic politics or its relations with the outside world, writes London's Jane's Foreign Report. (Fariba Mavedat) Judiciary Sentences Nowruz Publisher * A day after reformist MP Mohsen Mirdamadi, head of the Majles national security and foreign affairs commission, called easing of the US-Iran tensions essential for Iran's national interest, the press court banned his popular newspaper, Nowruz, for six months. It also sentenced him to six months in jail and four years ban from journalism for insulting Islam and propagating western culture and values. His trial had been a focus of the reformist press for the past several months. * In an unusual move, culture minister Ahmad Masjedjamei has asked judiciary chief Shahrudi to lift the ban on the reformist newspaper Bonyan which was closed last week. (Mehdi Khalaji) Tabriz Police Closes 40 Music and Software Stores for Selling Home-Made Duplication of Bootlegged Software * More than 40 music and computer software stores were ordered closed in Tabriz during the past month. Store owner Ali Javaheri tells RFE/RL that police shut down his store because he sold his own home-made duplications of already bootlegged audio CDs and compact discs that state-owned companies distribute without the permission of the foreign copyright owners. However, he managed to reopen after bribing the police, he adds. (Shireen Famili) Khatami's Emergency Job Creation Plan * Three cabinet officials - labor minister Safdar Hosseini, budget and planning director Mohammad Satarifar and central bank governor Mohsen Nurbakhsh - unveiled President Khatami's emergency job creation plan in a Tehran press conference this morning. In order to create 700,000 new jobs, double the current annual figure, the plan offers incentives such as low interest loans and tax relief to small workshops which make up 96 percent of Iran's 2.2 million businesses. However, RFE/RL's Paris-based economic commentator Fereydoun Khavand says Iran's high unemployment rate is a result of complex economic, social and political factors which cannot be resolved with emergency plans. Khavand also questions the absence of finance minister Tahmasb Mazeheri from the plan's presentation. WORLD * Israeli forces enter several Palestinian towns.

The association's director Mohammad Anvar Shaib tells RFE/RL he plans to gather Afghan journalists in Kabul for a general meeting this summer.
