Shaping up for change or just more of the same?

Appeasement would seem a better option for the Islamic Republic and President Mohammad Khatami has tried to win back the youth vote, referring to their importance on several occasions, emphasizing the need to nurture democracy and encourage modernization for the sake of future generations as of March 2004. In the first visit to Iran in almost 30 years by a member of the British royal family, Prince Charles met Khatami before flying to Bam in the south east of the county where more than 40,000 people tragically died in an earthquake last December. Although Great Britain and Iran have a history of turbulent relations, the government of Tony Blair has been working to strengthen bilateral links under a policy of "constructive engagement" and British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw has made a number of visits to the Islamic Republic. INSET: STRONG SIGNAL TO TEHRAN.
