Israel Extorting US over Iran Deal
Saturday, June 20, 2015

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.

The answer to why and how this mentality has been created among Iranians should be sought in the contemporary history of Iran. Political developments in contemporary Iran, especially during the past century and particularly in the field of foreign relations, have played a great role in shaping the current identity of Iranians. And one of the most important features of this identity is the issue of pessimism and suspicion toward big global powers.

In the early days of June 2015, heated efforts aimed at achieving Iran deal are underway within both Western and Eastern blocs. Based on many important estimates, various dimensions as well as consequences of Iran deal will affect many international issues. One of the strategic, security-related, and military spinoffs of such a deal for transregional powers is the spread of proxy wars in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

Informed sources have also told the Iranian Diplomacy that on the verge of a possible final deal between Iran and the P5+1 countries, the United States and its allies in the region are trying to provide conditions that when the deal is signed, Iran would be at its weakest position in the region in security and political terms. This means that they want Iran to be engaged in Iraq, Syria and Yemen, and sign the final agreement not from a position of power, but out of helplessness and because it would have no other choice.

Despite different interpretations of regional stability and Iran's hegemonic role in the Middle East by Iranian and American sides, and despite various interpretations of and expectations from important international institutions such as the United Nations Security Council, the Iran deal will remain gravitational center of differing views and strategic and security-based challenges in the two countries’ future relations.

Iran will continue to remain one of the most important foreign policy issues for the United States during the next three decades. Therefore, as US President Barack Obama approaches final years of his term in office, strategic changes in the US foreign policy trends in the direction of confrontation or cooperation with the reality of the Islamic Republic of Iran have been mostly a function of strategic conditions and requirements of the US foreign policy apparatus in the past few years.

Spying under the Guise of Nuclear Inspections

It seems that interventions in Tehran’s nuclear case, which go far beyond the stipulations of the Safeguards Agreement, have prompted certain parties to talk about extralegal supervisions over Iran's nuclear program and expect to be allowed to meddle in the country’s internal affairs. Of course, such an expectation will be met with Iran's firm “no.”

The Iran Deal and Sense of Insecurity

Behzad Khoshandam
It seems that international and regional experiences gained in the past few decades have clearly proven that establishment of relative peace and stability in the security complex of the Middle East will not be possible through restriction of Iran's regional role and influence through sanctions and threats. On the contrary, it can be only possible by taking advantage of and even promoting domestic and international stability-seeking, inspiring and innovative capacities of this powerful regional actor.

The Iran Deal and Iran's Strategic Influence
Friday, May 8, 2015

Behzad Khoshandam
Regardless of whether a final nuclear deal is achieved or not, Iran would remain an actor, which creates order and forms coalitions in the Middle East. So, if Iran is supposed to interact as a strategic partner with Western transregional powers in economic, trade and civil fields, its normal strategic influence should be recognized and respected at regional and global levels, especially by the United States.
