Three years ago, when the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu displayed an imaginary map of Iran's effort to build nuclear bomb at the annual meeting of the United Nations General Assembly to the attendees, he was not taken seriously by anybody, even his own American friends. At that time, some politicians told Netanyahu that “your time is over,” though he did not believe them.

The marathon nuclear talks between Iran and the United States have finally born fruit and the two sides reached a nuclear agreement on July 14, 2015.

In all those years people suffered deeply because of these sanctions. That is one of the reasons why we hope so much that it will be possible to reach an agreement; that is the reason we are hosting these talks in order to be supportive and to create a positive atmosphere for these negotiations. But in the end, the negotiators have to reach this agreement and I think what we can do is to create an atmosphere as positive as possible and we are trying our best to do so.

Unfortunately, the possession of nuclear weapons has become associated with great power status, because the five permanent members of the UN Security Council were the first ones to have nuclear weapons. And they never understood that their reasons for wanting nuclear weapons were identical to the same reasons that India, Pakistan, Iraq or any country would have to possess nuclear weapons; reason to feeling threatened, wanting to be secure and to be able to practice what they called “deterrence”. It’s now been made perfectly clear to everybody that deterrence doesn’t work. When we are in an age of sub-state groups operating, when we’re in an age of so-called terrorism, nuclear weapons are useless; completely useless.

Countdown Has Begun for Great Political Decision

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.

Behzad Khoshandam
The most important impact of the Iran deal on relations between Iran and Russia will be reciprocal impact on strategic and tactical actions and behaviors of these two countries through regulation of their relations with big transregional powers, and more serious recognition of Iran's natural rights by Russia. Relations between Iran and Russia will not become stable in the light of the Iran deal unless Russians put such important issues as justice, mutual respect and serious and sincere cooperation on their foreign policy agenda with regard to Iran.

Fundamental trust of Arabs and Iranians toward each other with Arabs avoiding any effort aimed at promoting Iranophobia and extremism and avoiding recourse to transregional actor and security institutions to establish security in the geopolitical domain of Iran-Arab interactions in the light of the Iran deal should be considered an inevitable requisites for the promotion of regional development and creation of a good neighborly environment.

It is evident that resolution of these two issues within coming days and in a way that would lead to a win-win game for both sides, would maintain discourse-based balance in Iran and will also pave the way for the implementation of a possible comprehensive agreement over Iran's nuclear program.

The biggest benefit that the French officials seek in delaying or even aborting the nuclear negotiations is the hefty economic profits that their country will earn through selling military hardware to Arab states in the Persian Gulf.
