#Iran: a more conservative response to the draft nuclear agreement

7 Apr

Professor Mohammad Marandi

 

Last night I posted an Al Jazeera discussion which showed three different views from Iran, Saudi Arabia and the U.S towards the recent draft nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1.

The Iranian view was presented by Professor Zibakalam, who is a reformist.

In this clip, CCTV America has interviewed Mohammad Marandi who is more conservative. Dr Marandi has a PhD in English literature from Birmingham University and since 2005 he has been the head of the North American Studies Department, University of Tehran.

His father is close to Ayatollah Khamenei. He was the head of the medical team which oversaw the Supreme Leader’s recent Prostate operation. He is very well-connected inside the regime.

It’s an interesting interview. It’s worth watching to hear what the more conservative side of Iranian politics thinks about the recent deal.
