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.
