Expert comments on progress in Iranian nuclear talks

The talks of deputy foreign ministers that started on Friday morning changed format when the UK, US, France and Germany sent their chief diplomats. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov joined the meeting on Saturday. The negotiations continued on Sunday. Yevgeny Satanovsky, President of the Institute for the Middle East, emphasized that no clear results had been expected in the first place.

The expert noted that the non-proliferation regime will be a topic at the very final stage. He added that Iran had clear understanding that its regime would not survive without nuclear weapons. Iraq, Libya and North Korea serve to prove the point. Inability to find common grounds with the West, such as the story of Gaddafi, would mean an end for Iran too.

The US and France were especially active. Satanovsky believes that the US was trying to turn a blind eye to the Iranian nuclear program, as a tactic of President Obama to avoid failures. The expert said that Obama had no qualms about betraying Saudi Arabia, Israel, or both, as long as it justifies his Nobel Peace Prize.

France, on the other hand, was dragging out the process. Satanovsky reckons that it did not want the US model to succeed. France needs to fulfil obligations to Saudi Arabia, the main sponsor-state of the French administration, the expert says.
