Russia - Iran: Western Sanctions as a Stimulus for Development of Relations

Relations between Russia and Iran are experiencing a stage of dynamic development. Both parties are making significant efforts to reach a qualitatively new level of cooperation in all areas of interstate relations. Great expectations are attached to the upcoming visit of Russia's president to Iran. This could very well take place in the first half of this year. The schedule for Iranian president Hasan Rouhani's participation in the Caspian summit in Astrakhan in September 2014 has also been fully coordinated...

Erdogan Goes to Tehran: Business First, Politics Second

Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan got a warm reception during his two-day long visit to Iran. Friendly attitude was emphasized at the summit – it all goes to show that Ankara and Tehran decided to forget the serious political differences for the time being so that the parties could concentrate on economic issues... Setting up Iran-Turkey Supreme Political Cooperation Council is an important step which would be impossible to take without aligning positions on regional conflicts, especially regarding the situation in Syria. According to Erdogan, the members of Council should work as members of one cabinet. At that, it’s too early to make far-reaching conclusions about the emergence of Ankara-Tehran alliance...

Geneva-2: Look from Tehran

As is known, the United States’ policy on Iranian nuclear program has come under harsh criticism on the part of Saudi Arabia and Israel. It was harsh enough to make John Kerry say on NBC's «Meet the Press», «We are not blind, and I don't think we're stupid. I think we have a pretty strong sense of how to measure whether or not we are acting in the interests of our country and of the globe». Kerry assures that the most serious, capable and competent people in the US government with great experience of dealing with Iran tackle the nuclear program issue. Is it so? By the end of the summer in 2013 the US experts on Iran pushed the United States to the brink of unleashing a perilous military adventure against Syria...

The Barriers to Iranian – American Rapprochement: Within Iran and the US (I)

Relations between Iran and the United States appear to be thawing. Within the Iranian political establishment, President Hassan Rouhani and his cabinet were endorsed as negotiators and individuals with a history of negotiating with the Americans on behalf of Tehran. Rouhani himself had negotiated a secret arms deal with the Reagan Administration during the Iran-Iraq War whereas Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif has had many meeting with US officials, hosting people like Joseph Biden in his US residence, when he was the Iranian ambassador to the United Nations in New York City...

Why Barack Obama Does not Want Iran to Take Part in Geneva-2 Conference

Barack Obama summed up the results of the year at a White House conference. Talking about foreign policy he did not omit Iran. The President made a promise to veto any sanctions imposed against this country by Congress. At that the Washington’s refusal to see Iran as a Geneva-2 conference participant sounds rather insulting for Tehran. The administration attempts to hinder the process of imposing sanctions against Iran in the Senate have led nowhere. 26 senators supported the motion, including 13 Democrats and 13 Republicans... Being an interested party, Iran is watching closely the bickering between the White House and Congress...

US Flags Still Burnt in Iran

Ayatollah Rouhollah Mousavi Khomeini (Imam Khomeini), the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, told his followers once that the day “US sycophants” came out in support of the Iranian Islamic revolution would be the day of mourning. The prospects for restoration of the relationship between the United States and Iran is only a prospect to take shape as yet, still they are tangible signs the issue has hit the agenda of Iranian ruling circles and the country’s grassroots...

Iranian Nuclear Problem: Does it Have Solution?

...The next round of Geneva talks devoted to the Iran’s nuclear program is slated to take place on October 15-16... It is expected that Tehran will agree to stop the uranium enrichment at 20%, because, as the Iranians admit themselves, what they have in storage already exceeds the national requirements... It is also expected Iran will agree to more thorough and comprehensive inspections by the inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency in comparison with the checks the IAEA experts have conducted until recently. Talking about the prospects for the closure of Fordu uranium enrichment facility, this concession is excluded: it goes beyond the limits of what is acceptable and would send a wrong message to demonstrate that Iran admits it has suffered a defeat instead of sticking to more flexible diplomacy...

Israel Knocks Together an Anti-Iranian Front, or The Wolves and the Sheep

For a significant part of Israel’s modern history, a strategic concept has been in operation there of a so-called peripheral Islam which maintained that the main threat to the country came from neighbouring Arab states predominantly practising Sunnism which had to be resisted by offshoots of Islam – Shiites, Druzes and supporters of secularisation. On the strength of this, Israel developed privileged relations in the region, first and foremost with Iran and Turkey. However, following the anti-Shah revolution, Iran moved from the status of friend to the status of enemy, then with the increasing Islamisation of Turkey, relations also gradually began to deteriorate with Ankara as well. And then there was an unexpected turnaround. Israel embarked upon a new strategic project – the creation of an anti-Iranian-oriented Israeli-Sunni coalition...

The «heroic flexibility» of Iran’s New Diplomacy

...Tehran’s new diplomatic initiatives hold strategic significance for Iran. One could talk about their focus on changing the entire geopolitical architecture of the Middle East. However, the likelihood of an Iranian-American rapprochement, even within the framework of Iran’s «heroic flexibility», is relatively low. From Washington’s point of view, there is currently no chance of fundamentally improving relations with Iran without upsetting its balance of cooperation with Israel and Saudi Arabia, as well as other countries in the Gulf region. In order to tread the road to the White House, Tehran is still going to have to normalise its relations with these countries. As far as Israel is concerned, however, this kind of opportunity for Iran’s new diplomacy so far remains beyond the reach of what is acceptable.

Iran-US Relationship: First Signs of Thaw?

There is a chance US and Iranian officials will meet each other at the coming United Nations General Assembly session, including a meeting at top level between President Barack Obama and Hassan Rouhani. The bilateral tensions are running high but the event may become a turning point for the relations. Not a single US president has met his Iranian counterpart since the Shah of Iran was overthrown in 1979. The diplomatic ties between Washington and Tehran were severed on April 7 1980... At any rate, this year the President of Iran is the one to capture attention at the General Assembly. His address scheduled to take place on Tuesday, September 24, is expected globally with great interest.

A Clean Break is Needed (I)

The ghastly attack on an army school in Peshawar last Tuesday appears to be a topping point, finally, in Pakistan’s existential struggle with terrorism. Will the Pakistani leadership rise to the challenge? An equally daunting challenge awaits the policymakers in New Delhi. How does the Indian leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi respond to the watershed event of last week in Peshawar?..
