Understanding Iran’s Intentions in Foreign Policy
Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Diako Hosseini
Forget what opponents say about the nuclear deal. If the United States succeed to indicate its benign intentions, Iran is somehow ready to reverse past antagonistic rhetoric and practice proportionately, not only because of retort, but geopolitical beneficiaries which would be achieved through rapprochement between Iran and U.S. In recent years, some Iranian journalists, pundits and politicians who are affected by discussions about the rise of Asia, have begun thinking about the appropriate questions.

Friday, July 24, 2015

Abdolreza Ghofrani
One week after the nuclear deal did strike between Iran and the five plus one, Iran's Foreign Minister Dr. Javad Zarif's visit to a number of regional countries did begin in Kuwait on Sunday 26th July 2015. He has also visited Qatar and then neighborly Iraq. Certainly these kinds of visits between the high ranking officials of the countries of sensitive region of Persian Gulf is pretty ordinary and natural aiming at the development of the mutual and multilateral ties between these states as well as the stability and peace of the region is quite unavoidable and even essential.

The Fine or the Crude Art of Window Dressing: Hypocrisy at its Best
Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Kambiz Zarrabi
Those who actually believe (perhaps better than 95% of the public here) that the main purpose of the nuclear agreement reached between the world powers and Iran was to delay and hopefully to stop Iran’s clandestine efforts to develop atomic weapons can now be cautiously optimistic that the mission has been accomplished. Iran, they believe, was brought to its knees under the pressure of the sanctions and forced to accept the terms of the agreement. But just to be on the safe side, they are told that all options to react to any misbehavior by the Islamic Republic remain on the table, including re-imposition of the sanctions, as well as military action. So, what more could one ask for?

The Nuclear Agreement; Fantasies vs Facts
Sunday, July 19, 2015

Kambiz Zarrabi
The official version of what has led to the nuclear agreement reached between the P5+1 group and Iran is being sold to the American public as the best alternative to preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. There is an ongoing debate here among the public and the members of the Congress as to whether this agreement was, in fact, the best solution to the Iranian threat. But there is no expressed doubt among the media pundits, the blindfolded public, and the members of the Congress, whether Democrat or Republican, that the Iranian nuclear program has, in fact, been a threat to America’s regional allies and even to the security of the United States.

Landmark Deal Depends on Faithful Implementation
Friday, July 17, 2015

Kaveh L. Afrasiabi
The agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, will receive the UN's seal of approval in the near future, thus acquiring the status of an international agreement. It faces the challenge of approval in U.S. Congress as well as Iran's Parliament (Majlis), but perhaps its biggest challenge is the faithful implementation by both sides. From Iran's vantage point, there is real concern since, as the Supreme Leader has stated, some of the "5 +1" nations cannot be trusted.
