“The US and Zionist imposed plans such as the deal of century, recognizing Beit-ul Moqaddas as the capital of the Zionist regime and the accession of the Syrian Golan to other occupied territories are doomed”, he declared. Further, as he told the Assembly that Iran would not negotiate on the issue of its nuclear program as long as sanctions remain in place.“Our response to any negotiation under sanctions is negative,” he said.Moreover, he continued, “we shall not tolerate the provocative intervention of foreigners”, saying “we shall respond decisively and strongly to any sort of transgression to and violation of our security and territorial integrity”. Speaking this morning at #UNGA: Ukraine, Romania: @KlausIohannis, Iraq: @BarhamSalih, Eswatini, Liberia: @GeorgeWeahOff, Iran: @HassanRouhani, Lebanon: @General_Aoun. Also Palau: @TommyRemengesau & Georgia: @Zourabichvili_S. https://t.co/WdhsaIZtek— United Nations (@UN) September 25, 2019 The alternative and proper solution for Iran, he said, is to “strengthen consolidation among all the nations with common interests in the Persian Gulf and the Hormuz region”. The message of the Iranian nation, to “invest on hope towards a better future rather than in war and violence”, is “let’s return to justice, to peace, to law, commitment and promise and the negotiating table”.He upheld Iran’s security doctrine as based on “the maintenance of peace and stability in the Persian Gulf” and providing free navigation and safety of movement in the Strait of Hurmoz, which recent incidents have “seriously endangered”. Coalition for Hope“I should like to invite all the countries directly affected by the developments in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz to the Coalition for Hope meaning Hormuz Peace Endeavor,” stated President Rouhani.He explained the Coalition’s goal as one of promoting “peace, stability, progress and welfare” for all the residents of the region and enhancing mutual understanding and friendly relations among them. According to Mr. Rouhani, the initiative includes “various venues for cooperation”, such as the collective supply of energy security, freedom of navigation and free transfer of oil and other resources to and from the Strait of Hormuz and beyond. The Coalition is based on principles, such as compliance with UN goals and principles, mutual respect, dialog and understanding, and, most importantly, the “two fundamental principles of non-aggression and non-interference in the domestic affairs of each other,” he said. He did acknowledge that “the presence of the United Nations seems necessary” for the creation of an international umbrella in support of the Coalition for Hope. “The security of the region shall be provided when American troops pull out”, scorned president Rouhani. “Security shall not be supplied with American weapons and intervention”. Stressing that after 18 years, the US has failed to reduce acts of terrorism, he maintained that Iran however, “managed to terminate the scourge of Daesh with the assistance of neighboring nations and governments”. “America is not our neighbor”, he underscored. “The United States is located here, not in the Middle East” and is “not the advocate of any nation” nor “the guardian of any State”. According to Mr. Rouhani, “stability in the Middle East should be sought inside the region rather than outside of it”.
Brittle stars are included within a whole range of species, which contribute to knowledge in the medically important area of tissue regeneration. All brittle stars regenerate lose limbs, but the rate at which this occurs is highly variable and species-specific. One of the slowest rates of arm regeneration reported so far is that of the Antarctic Ophionotus victoriae. Additionally, O. victoriae also has an unusual delay in the onset of regeneration of about 5 months. Both processes are of interest for the areas of regeneration biology and adaptation to cold environments. One method of understanding the details of regeneration events in brittle stars is to characterise the genes involved. In the largest transcriptome study of any ophiuroid to date, we describe the results of mRNA pyrosequencing from pooled samples of regenerating arms of O. victoriae. The sequencing reads resulted in 18,000 assembled contiguous sequences of which 19% were putatively annotated by blast sequence similarity searching. We focus on the identification of major gene families and pathways with potential relevance to the regenerative processes including the Wnt/β-catenin pathway, Hox genes, the SOX gene family and the TGF beta signalling pathways. These data significantly increase the amount of ophiuroid sequences publicly available and provide candidate transcripts for the further investigation of the unusual regenerative process in this Antarctic ophiuroid.
