Country Information

IG Factbook : "Known as Persia until 1935, Iran became an Islamic republic in 1979 after the oppressive ruling monarchy was overthrown. Conservative clerical forces led by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomenini established a theocratic system of government. During the period 1980-88, Iran fought a bloody, indecisive war with Iraq. Iran has been designated a state sponsor of terrorism for its activities in Lebanon and elsewhere in the world and remains subject to US, UN, and EU economic sanctions and export controls because of its continued involvement in terrorism and its nuclear weapons ambitions. The UN Security Council has passed a number of resolutions calling for Iran to suspend its uranium enrichment and reprocessing activities and comply with its IAEA responsibilities. The political situation in Iran has recently bounced between hardline and moderate candidates with much non-governmental projects being subject to hash repression."
