Joint Statement by Catherine Ashton & Mohammad Javad Zarif
Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Catherine Ashton and Mohammad Javad Zarif
We, together with the Foreign Ministers of the E3+3, have therefore agreed to continue our diplomatic efforts. We have decided to extend the measures of the Joint Plan of Action to allow for further negotiations until June 30th.

Another Missed Opportunity
Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Kaveh Afrasiabi
In historical retrospect, future historians may well regard the latest failure to reach a final-status nuclear deal between Iran and the world powers as a splendid though unfortunate example of 'missed opportunity'.

Obama Administration Has Goodwill for Rapprochement with Iran
Sunday, November 23, 2014

Craig Unger
I think they can come up with what would be called a partial success. Both sides have invested enough a lot on this. I think both the Rouhani administration and Obama administration genuinely want an agreement, but I am less optimistic today than I was before the elections, the Congressional elections, because the Obama administration is going to try to work around the Congress, but a new Republican-dominated Senate will try to ruin the deal by re-imposing sanctions and I don't know how that will work out exactly, but it's certain that we will see that kind of battle would take place.

Implications of Republicans Election Win for US Policies
Saturday, November 22, 2014

Seyed Mohammad Kazem Sajjadpour
US midterm elections should not be assessed on the basis of exaggerated viewpoints. It is a reality that these elections can be looked upon as a development, which has precedent in domestic policies of the United States. What has been once more revealed through these elections is the traditional tug of war between two poles of positive and negative power in the United States, that is, the presidency and the Congress. At the same time, it should be noted that the final goal of both the Republican and Democrat parties is to protect the United States and promote its regional and global interest.

Strengthening Iran's Status, Greatest Outcome of the Nuclear Deal
Saturday, November 22, 2014

Kayhan Barzegar
A major point which is usually missing in our analyses is that the most important outcome of a nuclear deal for Iran would be redefinition of the country’s powerful status regionally and globally. We should pay due attention to this aspect of the issue and note that if the negotiations end up in a comprehensive deal, Iran's regional and global status would be immediately strengthened mostly due to the new situation that the Islamic Republic has been able to resolve an important international issue through its own independent approaches based on its national power and on an equal term with major world powers.

Oman or Saudi Arabia: Which Is a Better Model for the Region?
Friday, November 21, 2014

Yasin Madani
When it comes to Iran, as one of the main parties to regional developments, it should be noted that this country has reached the point of no return in nuclear negotiations. Therefore, even if a final agreement is not reached with the P5+1 group of countries by the November 24 deadline, Iran would have shown its commitment to diplomacy as the best peaceful way for the resolution of differences and has also shown its power in this regard.

Nuclear Talks, An Opportunity for West to Accept Iran's Regional Power
Friday, November 21, 2014

Reza Jalali
It would be apparently more realistic to admit that Iran will be able to achieve a lasting agreement (which is more important than a comprehensive one) with other negotiating parties only if it is able to forge a kind of balance among all political powers that are involved in the country’s nuclear case. Therefore, the country should make up its mind and make the best of the existing political conditions in the region and the world.

Opportunities That May Not Come by Again
Thursday, November 20, 2014

Abdolreza Ghofrani
There is less than one week till the new round of nuclear talks resume between Iran and P5+1 in which a comprehensive and mutually agreed upon agreement probably will be reached. Different predictions, sometimes being contradicted, have so far been made and still are going on. Through the last round of negotiations in Muscat in previous week the comments, analyses and reports on this issue had reached its peak, because there was the probability that Muscat talks would lay fair and proper grounds for the comprehensive agreement on 24 November.

Extension of Iran Emergency State Undermines Nuclear Talks, Harms Region
Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Reza Nasri
This year, and before making a decision on the extension of the emergency state, US President Barack Obama will not be able to disregard the political and geopolitical developments in the region anymore. Therefore, if the emergency state is extended this November, it would no more be a “usual” course of action on the part of the White House.
