A constructive and profit-seeking diplomacy becomes meaningful when it can give the other side room for reaching a deal and compromise. Therefore, if a final deal over Iran's nuclear program is not clinched by July 9, it would become less possible for Tehran’s opposite side in Washington to abide by its obligations. At present, the time is ripe for Tehran, Washington and even the European Union to make the final decision because after the lapse of this deadline they may not have a better opportunity to make this decision.

Unprecedented spread of terrorist operations across the world by such Islamist fundamentalist groups as the ISIS, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, al-Nusra Front and al-Shabab has turned into a global threat during recent years.

Moscow has been trying to take a multi-vectoral and pragmatic approach to versatile conditions in the Middle East in order to maintain a certain level of relations “with all parties” to guarantee some of its interests and gradually boost its influence.

Kurds: A Common Issue for Iran, Turkey

Elyas Vahedi
Kurds are among one of those peoples in the world that despite considerable population and independent ethnic and cultural identity do not have an independent country. The Kurdish nostalgia, therefore, has been always a dominant feature among Kurdish groups in the region, but conditions characterizing political geography of the Middle East have not allowed Kurds to make their dream of creating a Greater Kurdistan come true. Developments in Iraq subsequent to the occupation of this country by the United States have not only had profound effects on Iraq, but also on Kurdish groups in the neighboring Syria, Turkey and Iran.

The emergence and spread of three evil forces, that is, separatism, extremism and terrorism, are considered as three basic threats to the national security of China and this has been even mentioned as the main reason for the establishment of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. As a result, more closeness between Uyghurs in Xinjiang and ISIS, in addition to the spread of ISIS in Afghanistan and Central Asia, can further intensity the aforesaid three major threats to the national security of China.

Mohammad Mehdi Mazaheri
Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu believes that such a deal would be among the worst mistakes made by the Western countries with regard to Iran because it would not prevent Iran from building nuclear weapons. Netanyahu has also alleged that he has talked to Arab neighbors of Iran and all of them share his view about the risks of a nuclear agreement with Iran. Under these conditions, it seems that on the verge of a possible deal between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries, Israel is doing its best to link that deal to the interests and security of Tel Aviv.

Ardeshir Zarei Ghanavati
When Washington accepted that there is no such thing as good and bad terrorism and reached the conclusion that such terrorist groups must be fought against at any place regardless of their geopolitical position and irrespective of the relations that exist between the United States and countries supporting them, then one could have hope to see the promising light at the end of the tunnel.
