Obama is urged to make closer ties with Iran
In an open letter – hardly mentioned by the Western mainstream press, a group of high-level and rather “Realpolitik” US diplomats, scholars, military and politicians urge President Obama to take concrete steps to intensify the co-operation with Iran.
There are obviously concerned that the U.S. shall be perceived as an obstacles for the implementation of the JCPOA, or the Iran Nuclear Deal that, on Thursday the 14th, turns one year.
I argue here why I think it is very important that the U.S. moves ahead, one because it was a good deal under the circumstances and, secondly, because it could have absolutely terrible consequences if the deal and its provisions are not honoured – both in Iran, for the Middle East and for the credibility and honour of the US and the rest of the West.
