A state funeral is being held in Iran where its top nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was assassinated on Friday. Tehran accuses Israel of plotting the assassination. Israel has not officially commented. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says the country will seek revenge in “due time.” The Iranian parliament also demanded a halt to international inspections of the country’s nuclear sites, while a senior government official hinted Iran should leave the global non-proliferation treaty. Some analysts say the assassination could seriously complicate plans of U.S. President-elect Joe Biden to resume dialogue with Iran. The international community has condemned the assassination, while warning against further escalation of tensions.

  • In This Story: Iran

    Iran, also called Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a country in Western Asia. Its central location in Eurasia and proximity to the Strait of Hormuz give it significant geostrategic importance. Tehran is the capital and largest city.

    Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established the current Islamic Republic in 1979.

    Iran’s political system combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power and has large reserves of fossil fuels — including the world’s largest natural gas supply and the third largest proven oil reserves.

    The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society comprising numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest being Persians, Azeris, Kurds, Mazandaranis and Lurs.
