    Terminating Iran’s nuclear deal: What’s at stake?

    The nuclear deal laid the foundation for future diplomacy between Tehran and Washington, while bolstering moderate Iranian leadership at home as well as sending a clear signal to the United States of the worldwide recognition of Iran’s right to civilian nuclear technology.  President-elect Donald Trump frequently spoke against Iran’s nuclear deal on the campaign trail, giving a vague ultimatum to the Iranian government that he would roll back the Obama administration’s policy of engagement with Tehran if he becomes the president.  To dismantle this hard-won diplomatic achievement, which have benefited not only Iran and the United States, but also the rest of the region, is likely to have disastrous consequences. Two questions worth contemplating at this juncture: (1) how would the new U.S. administration react to the Iran deal? and (2) will terminating the deal benefit the United States over the longer term?

    Why did the Americans elect Trump?

    The American people voted for their new president and Congress members on November 8. Not only the U.S. but the entire world monitored the election campaign of both parties with great interest since everyone was curious about how their countries would be affected with the new government. They were wondering if the U.S. would continue to interfere in foreign countries’ conflicts or if it would focus on their own people’s needs and interests.

    Next week’s anticipated U.S. election 

    TEHRAN - For those misguided individuals who think there exists a democratic process in the United States to elect the president, think again.  Aside from the reality that the popular vote for the U.S. leader is at best an election to determine the votes of the ethereal elite who will actually vote for the president in December, there is the issue of just who counts the votes, how they are counted and who owns the voting machines.

    America’s attitude toward Iran risks shifting Tehran’s East-West balance toward Russia

    Russia’s Foreign Ministry announced this week that diplomats from Russia, the U.S. and regional powers in the Middle East would meet in Switzerland this weekend to discuss the crisis in Syria. The U.S. State Department has said the talks are aimed at finding, “a multilateral approach to resolving the conflict in Syria, including a sustained cessation of violence and the resumption of humanitarian aid deliveries.” While diplomats from regional powers Saudi Arabia and Turkey are expected to attend, it is not yet clear whether Iranian representatives will be present. The key to Iranian cooperation with world powers on such a regional issue, however, remains the proper implementation of the nuclear deal.

    Prospect of cultural cooperation between Korea, Iran highly bright

    As the vice minister for culture, sports and tourism of the Republic of Korea, I am going to arrive at Tehran in a few days for the first time in my life with a large cultural delegation. I am eager to see with my own eyes the cradle of human culture and meet the Iranian people who deserve to be praised for their contribution to the humanity achievements, be it literature, philosophy, art, architecture, and many others. And I am also delighted to introduce many aspects of Korean culture to Iranian friends during my stay in Tehran.
