Friday, April 6, 2012

Hossein Salimi, a professor of international relations at Allameh Tabatabaei University, believes that Iran's relations with the European Union (EU) are in decline and maintains that achieving a symbolic agreement to ensure Iran's compatibility with the international system is the best way to rebuild those relations.

P5+1 IS Not Unanimous On Iran
Saturday, March 24, 2012

It is a historic mistake that President Obama is fanning the flames of war into the two nations’ relations. He might want to show force to the Iranian government, but the result would damage the two nations’ relations. Now we are on the eve of Nowruz, the new Iranian Year of 1391. President Obama’s first Nowruz message was very positive and looking forward. With the daily talks of war and sanctions, an opportunity has turned into a threat. Now, Iranian families’ main topic of discussion in their Nowruz visiting would be the likelihood of American military attack or President Obama’s harsh economic sanctions policy that mainly affected the families’ economic standard of living.

Analysis of Obama’s AIPAC Speech
Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Obama’s address to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) meeting on Sunday, March 4, and his subsequent remarks at the White House are both noteworthy and different from each other. As AIPAC is a meeting dominated by Zionist elements, the US president’s remarks in that meeting have been influenced by the general pro-Israeli atmosphere and policies of that entity. However, what Obama said at the White House and following his address to AIPAC, was softer and somehow different from his AIPAC address.

What the Iranian Nuclear Issue Needs
Tuesday, March 6, 2012

In these circumstances, it seems that the West needs, as stressed before, to rethink and reconsider how to exercise diplomacy towards the Iranian nuclear programme. Any escalation of belligerent rhetoric and deterioration of conditions as well as each side’s interpretation of the situation can darken the political record of the West in the eye of the Islamic Republic and lead to the latter to revise and jeopardize all its economic and political relations with the whole West. From this perspective, innovation, appropriate interaction, equal flexibility, and creation of more opportunities are some of the more important factors that can determine the development of future conditions for useful and effective negotiations.

Amano’s New Report on Iran's Nuclear Program
Wednesday, February 29, 2012

It seems that if the IAEA manages to free itself of the pressure put upon it by domineering powers, which seek to preserve a monopoly on the production and use of high-level technology including the nuclear energy know-how, it can easily reach an agreement with Iran according to a model similar to the previous modality, so that a practical solution is achieved for removing all the existing doubts and ambiguities about Tehran’s nuclear program.

Oil Sanctions against Iran or A Threat against Global Energy Security?
Saturday, February 11, 2012

Enforcing sanctions against Iran's oil imports by the European Union will pose a serious threat to global economy and energy security. The main goal of the sanctions is to bring about a basic change in Iran's nuclear program and keep the balance of regional power by using such means as threat of force or sanctions. However, given the growing trend of economic globalization and increased interdependence between energy producers and consumers, and due to emergence of new effective actors in political and economic equations of the world, the entire globe is now experiencing a new paradigm. As a result, solutions sought to political challenges in the 20th century are no more efficient to tackle challenges in the 21st century.

Iran and Netanyahu’s Threats: Will Obama Listen to the Iranian Leader?
Friday, February 10, 2012

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei attended last week’s Friday Prayer’s in Tehran and while referring to mounting threats of the United States and Israel, gave an important answer to those threats. During the past few weeks, Tel Aviv and Washington have tried to make the most of the recent faceoff between Iran and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) by beating on the war drums.

West’s Useless Threats against Iran's Nuclear Program
Monday, February 6, 2012

The West has continued its threats against the Islamic Republic of Iran since the former US President George Bush made his famous speech labeling Iran as part of the Axis of Evil in 2002. That address ushered Iran's relations with Western countries into a new phase of serious confrontation. West’s threats have been diverse and covered a wide range from mere political pressure to economic sanctions. On the opposite, Iran has taken smart initiatives in the face of those threats and sanctions which have rendered them useless.

Threat and Sanctions
Wednesday, February 1, 2012

“Threat and sanctions” form the main pivot of the United States’ and its European allies’ policy toward Iran. They believe that imposing economic and financial sanctions against Iran will paralyze the country’s economy and, more importantly, make Iran more isolated among the international community.

Europe and Iran Oil Sanctions
Friday, January 13, 2012

Member countries of the European Union (EU) have reportedly reached an agreement to impose sanctions on Iran's oil sector. After the agreement enters into force, the European countries will stop buying oil from Iran. Media reports are, of course, contradictory and this proves that EU member states have not achieved a final agreement yet. However, what if they reached an agreement? Will that agreement be actually enter into force?
