Mohammad Javad Zarif
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says there will be no agreement with the six world powers over Tehran’s nuclear energy program unless the UN Security Council’s sanctions against Iran are repealed.
The bottom line is that if the common sense governs the decision-making process at the White House, which seems to be the case, the necessary political will for reaching a comprehensive agreement will take shape within the next four months, in which negotiations have been extended as per the Join Plan of Action. At present, the Americans have reached the conclusion that the policy of threat and sanctions will get nowhere with Iran.
Since Iran is on its way to reduce tension with the West and sign a final comprehensive agreement with the Western countries over its nuclear energy program, as a result of which new oil markets would be opened to the country, it would be wise for Iranian officials to avoid creating any unnecessary problems in the country’s foreign policy.

The only outcome of bringing up Israel’s crimes at international bodies will be further disgrace for the Israeli regime and reduction of its international credibility. Apart from that, such institutions are not able to play an effective role in preventing Israel’s impunity.

Israel triggered a brutal military assault on the Gaza Strip under the pretext of reacting to the kidnaping and murdering of three Israeli teenagers by Hamas. Without further considering how the war opened, precise examination of the time when the tragedy began, and the new developments in the Middle East during the past years, alarms us to rethink and search for the deeper causes and more significant reasons of the recent outbreak. The main question is: “What strategic goals are behind the Israeli attack to Gaza at this time?
