I can't help feeling that the statements issuing from this "envoy" sound ever more inappropriate, offensive, and divorced from moral reality.
Meanwhile, the head of Italy's Senate defence committee, who has spoken with Iran's security chief Ali Larijani, has said that the two abducted soldiers, Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, are alive, though "not in great condition". It appears that Iran wants Italy to negotiate the release of the two men.
