Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks. The sanctions are unfair, the Iranian people are suffering, and our (nuclear) activities are legal. These sanctions are illegal and only benefit Israel.

Union Tourism Minister K. Chiranjeevi today announced the launch of a new campaign to publicise the tourism potential of the Himalayas and promote this incredible tourist product internationally.
To be called "777 days of the Indian Himalayas", the campaign will have a twofold objective, one to attract more international tourists to India during the lean summer season, and second, to remind the world that 73 percent of the Himalayan region is in India.
This decision was taken after a meeting with the office bearers of the Adventure Tour Operators Association of India (ATOAI). The Indian tourism industry has hailed this decision.

He explained that at the time of arrival or departure, the gateway cities will offer an opportunity to the visitors to see the tourism attractions available there.
Chiranjeevi emphasized that it is the time to change the image of India from the one entirely in the plains to one having major attractions in the Himalayas and to change the image from only a winter destination to a summer destination as well. ...
