MP: Trust between Iran, US starts to develop

MP: Trust between Iran, US starts to develop

The recent nuclear deal established little trust in Iran-US relations, spokesman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of Majlis told Iran Daily.


Prior to the nuclear agreement, Nozar Shafiei added, bilateral relations were gripped by deep-seated distrust.

The lawmaker said Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action is a fact-finding process to build up trust and gain valuable experience for both sides.

“Of course, our expectation of the deal’s impacts on Iran-US ties should be rational as the 23-month talks could not lead to thaw in US-Iran relations in all fields after 37 years.

“Unlike those who argue that the deal has nothing to do with other aspects of Iran-US relations, I maintain that success in one facet will inevitably steer us toward other achievements.”

Bilateral relations may not improve as expected in the short run, he predicted, however assuring that the ongoing developments will finally bring the two countries closer.

Iran and the US will be at odds on different issues even after implementing the deal, said the MP, adding the differences would prompt the two sides to shift from hostile to competitive policies.

Both sides have enormous potentials to lead to rapprochement, he opined, exemplifying the battle against terrorism as they did in Afghanistan [against Taliban] and [in Iraq] against Ba’ath Party.

“The two countries can also put an end to Yemen’s war and violence and help the warring parties solve the crisis diplomatically.

“The US government, which has molded negative public opinions against Iranians, is expected to prove its goodwill toward Iranians.

“Although the settlement of JCPOA-related issues was important to Iran, the country paid dear for it. There was no need for long negotiations and the US should have officially recognized Iran’s right to enrich uranium without any limitations.”
