An interview with Professor Mansour Farhang on issues related to the Middle East, Iran and the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of the Human Rights.
Dr. Mansour Farhang holds a Ph.D in political science from Claremont graduate School in California, and served as an advisor to the Iranian foreign ministry and as ambassador to the United Nations following the 1979 revolution. He later resigned in protest when the Khomeini regime refused to accept the U.N. Commission of Inquiry's recommendation to release American hostages in Teheran. Early in the Iran-Iraq war, he also served as envoy in negotiations with international peace missions. During his ambassadorship, Dr. Farhang wrote and spoke about the threat of religious extremists who had come to dominate the course of the Iranian revolution.
