Is there hope of de-escalation between Iran and the West? 5 Geopolitical Effects You Need to Know

1. Iran says it does not want war UK

Iran has given off a positive signal of its intentions recently, as its foreign minister said that Iran is prepared to work on French proposals to salvage the international nuclear deal that Tehran signed with world powers in 2015 but it will not tolerate U.S. interference in the Gulf. Iran has seemingly opened up to Europe, as France has softened its stance on the nation. In an effort to prop up the agreement, French President Emmanuel Macron offered on Wednesday to either soften sanctions on Iran or provide a compensation mechanism “to enable the Iranian people to live better” in return for full compliance with the pact.

2. Iran not opening up to the US

On the other hand, Iran’s stance towards the US has not changed or even worsened, as, in his speech, Iranian President Rouhani also struck a muscular tone on dealings with the US, saying that “talks are useless” over the nuclear deal. “Now that our enemies do not accept logic, we cannot respond with logic,” Rouhani said. He added: “When the enemy launches a missile against us, we cannot give a speech and say: ‘Mr. Rocket, please do not hit our country and our innocent people. Rocket-launching sir, if you can please hit a button and self-destroy the missile in the air.'” If the situation between Iran and the US is to de-escalate, the US will have to present an opening or improve terms.
