Payvand.com - The Westminster Committee on Iran today launched an online discussion forum providing a mechanism for academics, parliamentarians and policy makers around the world to discuss issues and share information on the growing standoff with Iran. It is hoped that the forum will act as a mechanism to increase dialogue and understanding between Tehran and the rest of the world with a view to avoiding military conflict.
The forum will be open for anyone to join and will encourage participation from all political and ideological viewpoints. It is hoped that the social networking site which provides secure platform will allow the open exchange of ideas and knowledge and allow members to explore issues in depth. The forum will be moderated by the Committee but views will not be controlled, edited or censored.
The Committee is not a campaigning organisation per se nor is it an official parliamentary body or All Party Parliamentary Group. Instead it aims to fill the space between these two types of bodies in order to increase dialogue, understanding and trust. The Committee opposes nuclear weapons proliferation in any form. It respects international law and the bodies that are responsible for upholding it. It advocates for balanced and objective reporting. It calls for genuine diplomacy in all international dealings.
