Why have the Nuclear Talks in Vienna been extended to end of June 2015 and why, nevertheless, the time has come to close the nuclear file? Hossein Mousavian, former Iran’s Ambassador to Germany and former Spokesman of the Iranian nuclear negotiation team, responded to these questions on the occasion of a Political Breakfast in Berlin. The Associate Research Scholar at Princeton University met with Members of the German Bundestag, representatives of government agencies and selected think tanks. During the confidential meeting Hossein Mousavian also talked about the possible cooperation between Western and regional powers in order to stabilize the Middle East, strategic changes in the region and the common fight against the Islamic State.
In the interview that he gave to the Körber Foundation, Hossein Mousavian explains his optimism vis-a-vis a final agreement on the nuclear file and his concerns about the Middle East as a “failed region” as well as the reason why Iran can’t trust the US administration’s promise.
