The publication of the latest report of International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Yukiya Amano on Iran's nuclear case has been followed by a lot of hype from Israel and the Western countries, especially the United States.

New Report or New Policy?
Monday, November 14, 2011

When Mr. Yukiya Amano was appointed as new director general of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) with direct support of the United States and its European allies, many analysts opined that IAEA will soon change from a legal organization to a political one to allow the United States to take political advantage of this international body.

Monday, November 14, 2011

The most important variable determining Russia’s position on various issues is its relations with the United States. Most Russians believe that two important principles; that is, preventing militarization of Iran's nuclear program and preventing Tehran from leaning toward Washington can be realized more properly through closer interaction with the United States, not Iran.

Innovative Diplomacy: Sole Way to Thwart US Ploys
Wednesday, November 9, 2011

For years, both the United States and Israel have been resorting to threat of force against Iran in order to use this “stick” to encourage Iran give up the policies that they claim has endangered international peace and security.

Russia and “Independent” Initiative in Iran’s Nuclear Case
Saturday, August 20, 2011

Russia’s initiative is an attempt to break the deadlock, not that Russia is mediating between Iran and 5+1. Tehran believes that 5+1’s demands are too much and many of them are politically motivated with no legal basis. Thus, negotiations have been at stalemate for some time. If Russia’s plan enjoyed solid legal basis and avoided of political motivations, it could be useful and clear the way for Iran’s nuclear case to be taken from the United Nations Security Council back to the International Atomic Energy Agency.
