Sometimes it takes a 2,700 year old chalice to make peace!

A Chalice toward friendship - for Iran and the U.S.!
The United States returns an ancient Iranian artifact, as relations appear to thaw

According to this CNN report:
  • A 2,700 year-old silver chalice may be a new token of friendship between the United States and Iran.
  • It had been in New York since 2003, when an art dealer smuggled it to New York
  • Iran's cultural heritage chief hopes its return will mark a lively cultural exchange with the U.S.
  • Mohammad-Ali Najafi says the ice between Washington and Tehran has thawed.
"I adamantly believe in cultural diplomacy, and I believe the thing that could improve relations between US and Iran after the years and softens the harshness of this relationship is cultural diplomacy."
