Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who holds ultimate power with a final say on foreign policy and Iran’s nuclear programme, sought to reassure Iranians, saying there would be no disruption to state affairs. #iran #trending

Published

on

Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.
