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.

Sydney SunSydney Sun | The latest news & events in Sydney, Australia
Sydney Sun works strenuously to bring our readers a completely independent perspective of Sydney news. Our editors, software programmers, journalists and affiliated wire services here at Sydney Sun are all dedicated to producing the best journalism possible.
This is a world where conflicts of interest pervade business empires, and political dynasties, and where a shrinking number of media proprietors are growing their interests at the expense of diversity of media ownership. The Sydney Sun was established more than a decade ago as an independent online newspaper, or eNewspaper, named after the Sydney Sun newspaper, first published more than a hundred years ago.
Our focus primarily is to produce the latest breaking stories out of Sydney, Australia's biggest city, as it occurs. There is also a focus on the wider metropolitan area with news of what is taking place in Manly and other suburbs on the northern beaches, Bondi Beach and the eastern suburbs; North Sydney, Parramatta and the Western Suburbs; through to the Blue Mountains and out into the Central West, down to Wagga Wagga and the southern regional cities and up the North Coast with stories from cities like Port Macquarie, and Coffs Harbour, as well as the latest events from Gosford and other key centres on the Central Coast, Newcastle and the Hunter, down to Wollongong and the Illawarra.
Sydney Sun also covers the nation. Regional news too is a priority, as is our extensive world news coverage. For a Sydney weather report, local news, breaking international headlines, or what is happening in sports, the Sydney Sun is here for you.
Our business centre too is active 24 hours a day providing the latest market updates and news from key global centres like Tokyo, Sydney, London, Paris, Hong Kong, Frankfurt, Chicago and New York. Sydney Sun provides stock indices tables, individual stock search functionality, independent market news, and foreign exchange rates, as a regular feature, together with a vast range of general interest news.
Sri Lanka edged Australia by 20 runs and in the process booked their seat in the semifinals of the Champions Trophy at the Kennington Oval here Monday.
England tied on four points with Sri Lanka top Group A, due to a better run-rate, and will play South Africa Wednesday in the first semifinal here. Sri Lanka will take on India at Cardiff in the second semifinal Thursday.
Mahela Jayawardene stroked a brilliant 84 off 81 balls taking Sri Lanka to 253 for eight.
A 41-run last wicket partnership between Clint McKay (30) and Xavier Doherty (15) almost saw their team home but in the end Australia were bowled out for 233 in 42.3 overs.
Earlier Sri Lanka, put into bat, were straight away on the back-foot, losing Kusal Perera (4) and Kumar Sangakkara (3) with the score on 20.
Tillkaratane Dilshan (34) and Lahiru Thirimanne (57) brought the Lankans back on track with a 72-run stand for the third wicket.
It was a Jayawardene masterclass from thereon in as the diminutive right-hander stroked 11 boundaries and took his team to a fighting total.
The key, though, was the 65-run partnership that the former captain forged with Dinesh Chandimal (31).
Australia, who needed to reach the target in 29 overs for a place in the semifinal, lost the dangerous Shane Watson (5) in the second over. ...
