Iran P5+1 Nuclear Deal
Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Nader Entessar
If the U.S. Congress plays an obstructionist role, as it has been doing for years, then the durability of the agreement will be in serious jeopardy. Iran will hold its part of the bargain as long as the U.S. and the EU adhere to their obligations.  If the West starts posturing and backtracking, I can see the deal unraveling.

Two Iranian Approaches to Israel’s Position on Nuclear Talks
Thursday, November 21, 2013

Hossein Valeh
In order to overcome the mutual lack of trust, which is in part a product of previous negotiations and agreements, both sides would need to show resolve, be patient, work hard, and spend as much time as is necessary to reach an agreement. However, the slowness of political changes on both sides has its own risks. It provides an opportunity for hostile parties to hatch new plots with any possible motivation.

In Reprehension of a “Bad Deal”
Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Mahdi Mohammadi
The fact that Iran is also seeking an agreement with the opposite sides should not lead to the misunderstanding that Tehran will consider any agreement as a good agreement and reaching an agreement – even a bad one – is more important to the Islamic Republic than the contents of the agreement. In fact, the reality is quite the opposite.

France, Israel, and Geneva Negotiations
Friday, November 15, 2013

Sha’ban Shahidi Moaddab
When assessing the Western countries’ position on Iran, we must not mistakenly assume that the Western countries constitute a solid bloc in their confrontation with the Islamic Republic of Iran. On the contrary, we must always bear in mind that big Western and Eastern powers do not necessarily have shared interests in all cases, but in some cases, their interests are even conflicting.

Four Realities about Nuclear Talks in Geneva
Thursday, November 14, 2013

Mahmoud Reza Golshanpazhooh
Although the negotiating sides failed to achieve an agreement during these round of talks in Geneva, the nuclear talks were marked with unprecedented bilateral and trilateral (attended by Mr. Ashton) negotiations between high-ranking representatives of Iran and the United States. This development has had no precedence since diplomatic relations between Tehran and Washington were severed more than three decades ago.

Why France Played Wrong Tune in Nuclear Talks?
Monday, November 11, 2013

Abdolreza Faraji-Rad
The French politicians are concerned that the foreign ministers of Iran and the United States may engage in bilateral talks through which the two countries would achieve certain agreements which will boost the influence of the United States on Iran's economy in the first place. This will restrict the maneuvering room for the French companies, in general, while reducing the influence of the European countries on the Islamic Republic, in particular.

Israel and Allies, Main Obstacle to Iran Nuclear Agreement
Sunday, November 10, 2013

Kaveh L. Afrasiabi
As the marathon negotiations in Geneva enter a third day at the highest level, the prospect for a timely breakthrough  in the decade-long nuclear standoff may be held hostage as a direct result of the negative input of Israeli pressure led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has not minced any words in expressing his displeasure with what he has pre-judged as a "bad deal of the century," presumably because this would be a deal whereby Iran would "gain everything without giving up anything," to paraphrase his Tweeter message.

Geneva Smiles to Peace and Happy Ending
Sunday, November 10, 2013

Yousef Mowlaei
It goes without saying that when it is evident that rationalism and pacifism are going to win and prevail, those countries, which seek insecurity and unrest in the region, will resort to any tactics in order to make up for their defeat. These are exactly the same countries that used Iran's nuclear case as an excuse in order to isolate the country and have, thus, caused many economic problems and difficulties for both the Iranian government and nation.

Pierre Goldschmidt

Sunday, October 27, 2013

Majid Takht-e Ravanchi
The next round of nuclear negotiations between Iran and six world powers – including permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany – will be held in the Swiss city of Geneva in less than a fortnight. On the eve of this new round of negotiations, certain US officials have adopted conflicting positions on Iran. Majid Takht-e Ravanchi, Iranian Foreign Ministry’s Deputy for Europe and Americas, has emphasized in the following interview with Iranian Diplomacy that all parties involved in negotiations over Iran's nuclear energy program should base their decisions on the expediencies of their own countries and international community and avoid becoming a victim to the West’s anti-Iran propaganda.
