“The solution to the Iranian nuclear issue should not be reached at the expense of these countries’ interests. The security concerns of Iran’s neighbors should be addressed, though not in the comprehensive agreement itself. Providing security assurances to the region could also result in a more positive attitude towards the nuclear deal with Iran. At the same time, international efforts should be aimed at making sure that no country in the Middle East is facing a military threat from its neighbors, rather than playing into the narrative of the states aspiring to regional hegemony or special status” – PIR Center and Strategic Studies Network report “Iran in the Regional and Global Perspective”.
“Attempts to have lethal robots operate in fully autonomous mode are unacceptable today, as current technology lacks the ability to accurately conform to the nuanced, context-dependent laws of targeting. However, we may eventually be capable of and compelled to use LARs in specific operational theatres. Thus, a timely dialogue and international consensus on their future is essential. However, an absolute ban on LARs, as advocated by such groups as Human Rights Watch and the International Committee for Robot Arms Control, appears to be premature for the moment,” – Elliot Serbin, Intern at the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation.
“If we are negotiating with the West that does not mean that our position regarding western dominance and interference in the Middle East has changed. Iran is not willing to give up its independent politics for any price. Iran’s eight-year resistance during a forcible war and its firmness in the question of peaceful use of nuclear energy are examples of such an Iranian approach. Resistance and evasion of sanctions are a witness to the independence of Iran. If Iran were to rely on the West, then we could not endure western pressure,” – Seyed Alinaghi (Kamal) Kharrazi, the Head of the Strategic Council of Public Relations under the administration of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
