Weekly Roundup: Nov.23rd – Nov.30th

November 23rd - November 30th 2018


Welcome to the weekend.

Emphasizing its commitment to preserve the nuclear agreement, the EU reassured Iran this week that it was still keen to draw up a workable deal, and one that would offer economic benefits for everyone.

Why not make something fun for yourself or your children? Our Persian Treat this week is a recipe for Koo Koo (we love the name). Follow us on social @KayhanLife to get more yummy recipes.
