Iran nuclear deal must be viewed realistically: Analyst

The recent nuclear agreement between Iran and the Sextet of world powers must be examined from an all-inclusive point of view, away from excessively optimistic or pessimistic interpretations, a political analyst says.

In a Thursday article published on the Press TV website, Mohammad Kazem Sajjadpour dismissed both over-optimism and over-pessimism about Iran’s nuclear deal and argued that neither of the attitudes is realistic.

The analyst argued that the over-optimistic view is “devoid of attention or care for minor details” while foreseeing a new era of interactions among all the involved players “without taking into account the technical as well as legal and political intricacies of the case.”

The over-pessimistic view, on the other hand, is based on the presumption that the goals of the nuclear agreement are essentially unachievable and that it undermined the entire course of a complicated consensus between Iran and the world powers with an unrealistic attitude, the article said.

“While remaining optimistic and hopeful, we must not also lose moderation with regard to this issue. According to the same argument, the Geneva Joint Plan of Action cannot be totally discarded through pure pessimism. What is now needed is to have a large-scale picture of this important diplomatic achievement in mind,” Sajjadpour pointed out.

Iran and the six major world powers sealed a historic interim agreement in Geneva on November 24 in an effort to set the stage for the full resolution of the West’s decade-old dispute with the Islamic Republic over the country’s nuclear energy program.

In exchange for Tehran agreeing to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities for six months, the six countries have agreed to lift some of the existing sanctions against Iran.
