Final Nuclear Deal Possible in Absence of Excessive Demands
Wednesday, September 3, 2014

Abbas Araqchi
We seek to achieve a rational solution, which would meet both sides’ demands. If they put forth excessive demands and insist on reaching an agreement without due care for our rights, we would not accept such an agreement. Therefore, if the deadline is reached without us reaching an agreement, it would not be the end of the world. We are totally capable of resisting any kinds of sanctions. I do not mean that not reaching an agreement is a desirable scenario for us. I mean that we have the necessary resolve to reach an agreement, but not just any agreement and not at any price.

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.

James L. Gelvin
It is important to remember that IS is a small organization, probably no more than 10,000 fighters (although with its recent string of victories it will undoubtedly attract more recruits and non-IS allies).  Even if they were to double their numbers, they would still be bringing into Iraq only one quarter of the number of trained soldiers the United States initially deployed there—and even with 80,000 troops in Iraq the United States soon lost control of the situation. But IS is not only present in Iraq, it is stretched out over a large territory in Syria where it is fighting on multiple fronts against multiple enemies—the Free Syrian Army, the Islamic Front, and Jabhat al-Nusra. This caliphate will not last six hundred years like the first one.

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Jack Straw
At present, I think it’s very difficult to predict the future. I know what I want, which is to see so significant improvement in the relations and a positive improvement. And I think there’s much to gain by helping Iran find its place in the world which is what it is. And I have no doubts that the Foreign Secretary wants to see an improvement in the relations.
