US Administration Failed to Enable Iran to Access Its Oil Revenues
Monday, July 25, 2016

Peter Jenkins
More blameworthy is the administration's failure to enable Iran to access previously frozen oil revenues. Easy solutions to this problem have been on hand. The administration has lacked the political will to implement one of them. Perhaps it will find the will after November's US elections. The Joint Commission can be used to discuss and find solutions to implementation issues. These banking issues seem to me ripe for submission to the Joint Commission. Only good can come of that.

Undermining JCPOA Not in Best Interest of Any Party
Wednesday, July 20, 2016

Pierre Goldschmidt
The JCPOA will survive any political storm as long as it is in every party's best interest to pursue its full implementation. The future is unpredictable but as of today I can't see which state-party could reasonably have a real interest in scuttling the deal during the coming 9 years, even if opposition groups will likely try to undermine its implementation.

NATO’s Media Hype Aims to Promote Iranophobia
Friday, July 15, 2016

Hassan Beheshtipour
Recent claim by leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) that Iran’s missile tests are against the Resolution 2231 of the United Nations Security Council on the JCPOA has no legal basis and is totally baseless as Iran had already announced its commitment to the resolution when it was adopted. When it comes to its defense issues, Iran has announced that it would not allow other countries to interfere or even express viewpoints on this issue. Iran embarks on producing defense weapons within framework of international law and international regulations, because its missiles are only aimed at deterrence.

The JCPOA and One-Year Experiences
Friday, July 15, 2016

Mohammad Khajouei
One year has passed since Iran and the P5+1 group reached an agreement on Tehran's nuclear program known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA); an agreement, which put an end to more than one decade of tension between the two sides over Iran’s nuclear program and turned into an important model for peaceful resolution of a difference. Now, where are we standing one year later? 

One Year after the Iran Deal and the Choice of Reconciliatory Strategic Necessity
Thursday, July 14, 2016

Behzad Khoshandam
The effects of the Iran deal one year after its conclusion are indicative of a profound development in relations between a regional power and global powers over the rights and duties of all involved parties, and are also a sign that the foundation has been finally laid for agreement on the basis of the “choice of reconciliatory strategic necessity” to achieve strategic stability and facilitate international cooperation. 

Changing the Legal Status of Iran’s Ballistic Missiles
Monday, April 25, 2016

Reza Nasri
Since Iran’s missile activities are no more considered as “illegal” under the international law, if the United States government or Congress decide to impose secondary sanctions on Iran in response to the country’s missile program, they will most probably face much more obstacles and opposition than before for getting other countries in line with their sanctions. At present, international atmosphere does not allow for creating tensions with Iran and imposing illegal restrictions on the country.

Requisites of the New Phase of Relations between Iran and the European Union
Thursday, April 21, 2016

Seyed Mohammad Ali Hosseini
Due to the positive international atmosphere created after the conclusion of Iran's nuclear deal with world power, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), European countries have been offered with an opportunity to learn a lesson from the past unpleasant trend and, through effective and constructive cooperation of the Iranian side, lay foundations of a new strategy based on balance, cooperation, common interests, and mutual respect.

Iran Must File Lawsuit with JCPOA Joint Committee against US Stonewalling
Thursday, April 21, 2016

Jalil Bayat
Iran is currently in a good position, where if it faces any limitation for the implementation of JCPOA or any obstacle to realization of the full benefit by Iran of the sanctions lifting, to take action to have its right recognized in line with the mechanism stipulated by the nuclear deal. On the other hand, sending Iran’s complaint to the Joint Commission will throw the ball into the opposite party’s court and put double pressure on the United States.

Another Act in the United States’ Post-JCPOA Strategy

Omid Adib
Obama’s regional tour in parallel to anti-Iran remarks made by American and Saudi officials can not only help the United States find a good market for its weapons, but also stress the point that if the nuclear phase of the West’s move against Iran was completed in cooperation with Europe, now littoral Arab countries of the Persian Gulf are missioned to keep up propaganda against Iran's missiles.

Post-Sanctions Era and Diplomatic Future of Iran and Russia
Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Mehdi Sanaei
After the implementation of Iran’s nuclear deal with the P5+1 group of countries, known as the Joint Comprehensive Program of Action (JCPOA), began on January 16, 2016, sanctions imposed against Iran on account of its nuclear program were removed. Removal of sanctions will have positive outcomes and give new impetus to Iran’s relations with Russia.
