Tayebeh Mohammadikia
Iran's nuclear negotiations have reached their sensitive stage.

Reza Jalali

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.

Abdolreza Ghofrani
Now we are at the threshold of 10th round of nuclear talks. American realism and pragmatism can be tested. If so there is still hope that US does not add up its problems. Otherwise, surely, there won't be good consequences for its present policies and simultaneously provide problems for other countries and begets and deepens more hatred in the world.

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.
