Iran Iran is the primary home of the Islamic faith and culture that you will find in the world. They are often people misunderstood and many of them that come to other countries to seek a better way of life aren’t given a fair chance from society to do so at all. Iran is located in the Middle East in the area that lies between Iraq and Pakistan. While the climate of Iran is very mild and the area is full of plains as well as mountain areas it is highly polluted. The amount of industry there due to producing so much oil has really taken a toll on the environment. There aren’t any laws there about clean are or emissions. The focus is always on having a healthy economy at any cost. The economy of Iran is very strong due to the amount of oil and natura l gas that they have an abundance of. They government of Iran is very private and they strive to keep things under wraps. This doesn’t sit well with other countries though that definitely feel Iran has plenty to hide. They want to be able to gain access to more information. Yet the leaders of Iran continue to deny access to their areas or to really sit down and talk with leaders of other countries unless it has to do with helping them out economically. There has been a great deal of controversy with Iran and other countries including the United States. Iran has long been accused of developing various types of nuclear weapons. In 2003 they were attempting to state that large volumes of uranium that they were importing were for research. Yet it is believed it was actually for the further development of more advanced nuclear weapons. Iran has also been involved in various acts of terrorism around the world. Some of them groups from Iran have readily taken credit for. Others they have been blamed for even though the country continues to deny any connection to such events taking place. As a result there have been sanctions in place to prevent the purchase of oil from Iran and to cut off dealings with financial resources in the United States. There are peaceful talks in the works with the United Nations and Ian though to help iron out some of the problems that haven taken place in the past.
