The Islamic Republic of Iran has rejected proposals, from members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) as well as other major oil-producing countries, to discuss freezing of oil production in order to boost prices and tackle global oil surplus.
Aleppo is worn thin. There is only so much destruction a city can handle before it turns into a ghost town. Syrians are waiting for the international community to do something, but we have had enough of the inaction.
The Syrian war is clearly un-winnable. With the Aleppo ceasefire, it is possible the US and Russia are waking up to this fact.

Last month I had the privilege of answering an interview from an Iranian research agency dedicated to studying acts of terror carried out against the Iranian people. By their count 17,000 Iranians have been killed in acts of terror over the last 3 1/2 decades. Quite an astounding number, isn't it?
What if you had to make a decision between continuing to work as a child laborer to make ends meet for your family or planning to risk the choppy waters and dangerous journey of taking a refugee boat from Turkey to Greece? This is the dilemma of Shrivan, a 16-year-old boy who fled Aleppo, Syria three years ago to southern Turkey.
Concerns over the potential for terrorist groups to obtain MANPADS from U.S.-supplied insurgents have been greatly heightened by incidents in which terrorist groups captured U.S.-supplied weaponry in Syria.
Listening to what they have to say and letting them be part of the decision-making process is an important first step to reforming global refugee policy. And with all the technology that lets people organise effectively, they don't have to reshape it alone, but can do it together with the refugees.
Instead of sitting back, crossing our fingers and hoping for an end to the Syrian civil war, the EU should be uniting to heap pressure on those regional powers blocking the path to peace. Never before has a continent with so much invested in the stability of its surrounding regions, been so reluctant to project its power and defend its interests.
We write to you as Syrians working on programs meant to support democratic reform. Recent events however have raised doubts whether our work has any meaning.
Here are a few words that I've written on behalf of Aleppo's pediatrician.
Defeating ISIS demands an approach that is patient, highly sophisticated, and multi-pronged, one tightly focused on their vulnerabilities, and a thorough knowledge of the group's history, intentions, motivations and strategies.
Your own government bombing the hell out of your city, including a children's hospital: This is the horror of life in northern Syria.
