The Snowball Effect

The Snowball Effect: Implications of the nuclear deal and the escalating debate within Iran.

One of the repercussions of the nuclear agreement is the controversy surrounding the form of the relationship with the U.S., and highlights in this context, three major trends. The first, which is led by Rouhani, believes that this agreement will help reach more consensus with the U.S. on regional issues, such as ISIS. On the other hand, the second trend does not trust the U.S. and sees no way to improve relations with it. This trend is adopted by the conservatives and the Supreme Leader Khamenei. As for the third trend, it necessitates retaining the current status of relations with the U.S. as it is, as well as having negotiations with the latter over the controversial regional issues.
