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.

Colorado StarColorado Star – Colorado state news service
The Colorado Star is essentially a local Colorado newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Colorado, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Colorado, Colorado, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Colorado Star.
BLACK FOREST, Colorado - A wildfire forced authorities to evacuate more than 900 prisoners from a state prison near Colorado Springs early Wednesday, one of four wildfires that raged across the Front Range of the Rockies burning up scores of homes.
About 2,500 homes and businesses in northeast El Paso County have also been evacuated, affecting about 6,400 people.
The fires were reported in El Paso County, Royal Gorge, Rocky Mountain National Park and Huerfano County.
Colorado Public Radio's Megan Verlee said at least 60 homes have been destroyed by one of the fires. The most damaging blaze is the Black Forest fire that has engulfed several homes in a heavily wooded development near Colorado Springs, she said.
Black Forest is a residential area northeast of Colorado Springs named for its thick growth of Ponderosa Pines.
Six helicopters and an air tanker were on the scene, El Paso County sheriff Terry Maketa said. C-130 cargo planes are also being deployed to help fight the fire.
The area is not far from last summer's devastating Waldo Canyon Fire that destroyed 346 homes and killed two.
The National Inter-agency Coordination Center says the Black Forest Fire has so far consumed about 7,500 acres and is zero percent contained. ...
